Poacher’s Pilgrimage: Alastair McIntosh’s Island Journey

March 29 at 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free - 3£

Alastair McIntosh takes us on a 12 day journey across a physical landscape and into a spiritual one : Join us on a poacher’s pilgrimage through the Outer Hebrides with the celebrated writer and activist!

In his latest book McIntosh brings to life some of the most remote and spectacular scenery in the world. He shows us how the Outer Hebrides are home to an astonishing range of mysterious structures from beehive dwellings to stone circles, holy wells and ’temples’ from the Celtic era.

Traversing moors and mountains, struggling through torrential rivers, he walks from the most southerly tip of Harris to the northerly Butt of Lewis. The book is a walk through space and time, as MacIntosh battles with his own ability to endure some of the toughest terrain in Britain, and connects with the healing power of the land and its communities. This is a moving book, a powerful reflection not simply of this extraordinary place and its people met along the way, but of imaginative hope for humankind.

Alastair McIntosh is an independent writer, broadcaster, speaker and activist who is involved in a wide range of contemporary issues, from land reform, globalization and nonviolence to psychology, spirituality and ecology.
