This book is about the island of Stroma in the Pentland Firth, a mile across the water from John O’ Groats, off the far north coast of Scotland.
Stroma no longer exists as it did. Stroma is a micro example of Scotland's depopulation over the last two centuries. It is a beautiful, haunting island with the voices of its former inhabitants still palpable in its strange and empty landscape. Most of the islanders' homes are derelict, but some still have touching mementos and artefacts of their former lives.
