Gavin Maxwell changed the way we approach and view nature with his best selling memoir A Ring of Bright Water – a magical story about his relationship with three otters and the bewitching landscape of the west coast of Scotland.

After discovering Gavin Maxwell as a child in the local library, Dan Boothby’s life seems to have been guided by the lyrical, moving descriptions found in A Ring of Bright Water. Now after spending time on Maxwell’s island of Eilean Ban, Dan writes with lyrical clarity of the modern land and seascape. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to listen to his introspection and clear-sighted observation on a landscape that still informs our approach to nature!
