A Poacher's Pilgrimage with Alastair McIntosh

November 20 | 15:00 - 16:00

Dundee Adults Panel Event / Author Reading Scottish Writers

Join Alastair to hear about his physical and spiritual journey through spectacular scenery and rough weather in the Outer Hebrides. The islands of the Outer Hebrides are home to some of the astonishing range of mysterious structures - stone circles, beehive dwellings, holy wells and 'temples' from the Celtic era. Over a twelve-day pilgrimage, often in appalling conditions, Alastair returned to the islands of his childhood and explored the meaning of these places. Alastair McIntosh is an independent writer, broadcaster, speaker and activist who is involved in a wide range of contemporary issues, from land reform, globalisation and non-violence to psychology, spirituality and ecology. He is the author of the best-selling Hell and High Water, and his most recent book is Poacher's Pilgrimage: An Island Journey. Refreshments will be available.
