An Island Given Away
Thursday's blog was a feature on the island of Taransay, with its price tag of £2 million. The image above is of John Lorne Campbell (1906 - 96), a man who declined to sell his island. It was Canna, the most westerly of the Small Isles, and the subject of Ray Perman's book, The Man Who Gave Away His Island. One click and you are there for the story, sights and sounds of a place where a farmer, environmentalist and Gaelic scholar showed generosity of spirit.
