THE SUMMER ISLES: A VOYAGE OF THE IMAGINATION

£20

Philip Marsden, Granta

he Summer Isles are an archipelago in the North West Highlands of Scotland. Writer Philip Marsden and his aunt Bridget used to look across the deceptively and sets out from his home on the Fal. His ambitious route takes him up the west coast of Ireland where his passion for Celtic mythology and the Irish language has full play. This long summer’s voyage is as thickly littered with poets and singers as with rocks and headlands, and only the weather proves unaccommodating.
