About this book

The islands of Orkney are distinct, perhaps that bit wild. Remote, surrounded by an endless ocean and dominated by an infinite sky, which brings either brilliant light or days of wind that makes everything taste of salt. This remarkable landscape has the power to bewitch people, and Robin Noble has been in its thrall for a lifetime. In Sagas of Salt and Stone he takes us on a personal voyage of adventure and discovery of the archipelago, its history, nature and people – from its seabird colonies and startling rock formations to its fishermen's huts and the Ring of Brodgar. Robin reflects on what has changed and is changing in Orkney, sharing stories of golden summer days and relentless winter storms, of past friendships and family travails. He highlights the best that Orkney has to offer and elucidates its power to inspire and to provide succour for troubled souls. Sagas of Salt and Stone is nothing less than his love letter to Orkney and its people.

Biography

The Islands and Highlands of northern Scotland run deep in Robin Noble's blood. He is a naturalist who leads groups at the world-renowned Aigas Field Centre run by Sir John Lister-Kaye, and an eminent expert on the ancient woodlands of the Highlands. He's also an artist, singer and hill-walker. His history of the Highlands, Castles in the Mist, was shortlisted for last year's Saltire Society History Book of the Year award, whilst North and West explored Scotland's wilderness.
