Soay

I have not been here for ages, indeed on the first and last occasion we were summoned into a house for a dram or two by a local man. When I noticed all the shark fishing stuff hung on the wall I realised who our host was — the legendary Tex Geddes, Gavin Maxwell's shark fishing partner who was still very much in charge of the island.  There are still some remains of their shark fishery buildings by the harbour. Tex died in 1998. Now the permanent population is down to three but one of them, Anne Cholawo has written a splendid and charming account of her life there — Island on the Edge, A life on Soay, Birlinn, 2016.
