For 20 years, since 1991, historian and poet Angus Martin has been documenting in the Kintyre Magazine his observations and experiences while walking the hills and shores of his native Kintyre.

This volume - an eclectic mix of natural history, history, archaeology, folklore, and much else, ranging from snippets to mini-essays - comprises a selection of 'By Hill and Shore' from the past 40 issues, plus supplementary articles and some 90 illustrations, mostly his own photographs taken during the past 30 years.

Rich in its evocation of places, people, and creatures great and small, this anthology should provide lasting enjoyment to all readers, at home and abroad, with a passion for 'lovely, long Kintyre'.
