Life is never easy at Munlochy Animal Aid – feral kittens to catch, abandoned dogs to rehome, injured guests of all shapes and sizes to care for, funds to be raised and grants to be sought. The work never ends, but founder Iona Nicol would not have it any other way (although a little more sleep would be nice).

In her second book, Loving and Living with Animals, Iona takes us through six months of triumph and heartache at the charity. We meet Eddie the Eagle, Scotland’s friendliest dove; Pudding and Hoggy the hungry hedgehogs; Tara, the boisterous and permanently happy German Shepherd puppy; and follow the endless battle of wills between the kitchen cats and the bedroom cats.

All profits from this book will go towards the work of Munlochy Animal Aid.

In 2018 the North of Scotland Archaeological Society celebrated 20 successful years of its existence, during which it has developed into a thriving and dynamic group willing and eager to investigate new fields of archaeology and take on new challenges.

Over the years it has undertaken many projects, gaining in knowledge, experience and understanding. A Year of Highland Archaeology looks at some some of its recent archaeological projects and activities. Some have been carried out using long established methods, such as field walking and plane-tabling. Others have used more digital techniques, such as photogrammetry and drones. All, however, are enjoyed by an enthusiastic band of local amateur archaeologists.

Take a look here at more titles to enjoy from Bassman Books - the publisher on the Black Isle.
