The history of Finsbay Lodge, Harris

£14.99

Product description

Illustrated. Painstaking history of this Hebridean fishing lodge in Harris. "The author has unearthed an amazing amount of detailed information, not just about the Lodge and the characters that were drawn to it and to Harris, but also relating to the fish and fishing. .Evocative glimpses of unique Hebridean life for both local and visitor at the beginning of the 20th century and at the start of the First World War". Also covers the relationship of the Lodge with "the hotel at Rodel, the lodge at Borve, the salmon and sea trout fishing at Leverburgh and Horsacleit, and the school at Finsbay. The contributions of the proprietors of Harris, Lords Dunmore and Leverhulme also find their place, along with Thomas Wilson, Archie Chisholm, the Lodge staff and the local children [as well as] land reform, fish hatcheries, and rivalry for shipping trade". The book includes some sea-trout biology and historical angling results. Without marks. Very goos as new copy
