Description:

Once the lifeblood of Scotland's rural economy, the tradition of droving became all but extinct after the industrial revolution - except on the Western Isles, where froving on foot persisted until the mid 60s when Caledonian MacBrayne introduced a new generaqtion of ferries capable of bringing livestock lorries to the islands. This book follows the route of drovers from the remote atlantic coast of Uist to the Highland marts. This is an extraorinary insight into a lost world.
