"These poems perfectly reflect just how it feels to be standing looking across the Sound of Harris at every state of weather, time and tide."

Pauline Prior-Pitt's review of Cnoc and Loch 

I am a poet, researcher & writer, living and working in the Western Isles of Scotland where my family roots extend back at least a quarter of a millennium.


In addition to my creative writing, including poetry, I also am an experienced researcher specialising in the social and economic history of the Western Isles of Scotland and am actively involved in community development.
