Island on the edge; a life on Soay
Publication year: 2016
Media class: Paperback
Resource type: Physical
Anne Cholawo was a typical 80s career girl working in a busy London advertising agency, when in 1989, holidaying in Skye, she noticed an advert for a property on the Isle of Soay. She had never heard of Soay before, let alone visited it, but something inexplicable drew her there. Nearly 30 years on, she is still there. This book describes her extraordinary transition from a hectic urban lifestyle to one of rural isolation and self-sufficiency, without mains electricity, medical services, shops or any of the other modern amenities we take for granted.
