In her charming account of the rural village of Bruach, Lillian Beckwith paints a vivid picture of life as a Hebridean crofter, introducing a cast of colourful locals including village clown Johnny Comic and the irrepressible Erchy and Hector. With her trademark warmth, wit and lively humour, "Miss Peckwitt" spins a sparkling, unsentimental tale of an idyllic, long-lost way of life.
'For an unsentimental, lively, apparently photographically accurate picture on a Hebridean island, Miss Beckwith's essays or memoirs or stories would be hard to beat.' The Times
'A sparkling book which could well become a Scottish humorous classic' Weekly Scotsman
