Beloved the world over for its sartorial and extreme weather-defying properties, Harris Tweed is one of Scotland's most famous island exports. However, the rise to fame for this glorious cloth has been far from straightforward, as is shown in a charming short film by Nick David and Jack Flynn. Find out how Harris Tweed came to receive its very own Act of Parliament and catch a glimpse of the production process behind the creation of 'The Big Cloth'.
The islands of the Outer Hebrides are home to many mysterious structures – stone circles, beehive dwellings, holy wells and ’temples’ from the Celtic era. In a remarkable new book, Alastair McIntosh returns to the islands of his childhood and explores not only the meaning of these places, but wider moral concerns around the idea of a just war, globalisation and ecology.
