About the Book
In Eccentric Wealth, Alastair Scott traces the life of Lancashire industrialist Sir George Bullough in this absorbing biography which explores his
family’s connection with the Hebridean island of Rum, particularly the building of Kinloch Castle, the most intact preserve of Edwardian highliving
to be found in Britain.
Based on new information, the book offers a fascinating insight into the life and times of one of the great eccentrics of his age, including the
Bullough myths and scandals which continue to make extraordinary reading more than a hundred years later.
