Daring to dream to discover more of Gavin Maxwell

Being offered a position as warden of Kyleakin Lighthouse Island, the last home of Ring of Bright Water author Gavin Maxwell, was a dream come true for Dan Boothby.

This book tells of his time living on this tiny island on the Western seaboard of the Highlands; the people he met, and the history that surrounded him.

Interspersed with the author’s own story is a quest to better understand the mysterious Gavin Maxwell.
