About the Book

Meg Bateman vividly evokes the landscape of Scotland, particularly the brooding presences of the Scottish islands and Sutherland, and touches on personal love and loss in this intimate and celebratory collection.


The Author

Meg Bateman

Meg Bateman was born in Edinburgh in 1959. She lectures at Sabhal Mor Ostaig in Skye, part of the University of the Highlands and Islands, where she teaches literature and philosophy through the medium of Gaelic. She learned Gaelic in South Uist and the University of Aberdeen where she taught for many years. Her poetry is included in numerous anthologies such as the ‘Penguin Book of Scottish Verse’ and the ‘Penguin Book of Poetry from Britain and Ireland since 1945’. She has translated and co-edited anthologies of Gaelic medieval, 17th century and religious verse. Her two collections, ‘Aotromachd / Lightness’ and ‘Soirbheas / Fair Wind’, both published by Polygon, were shortlisted for the Scottish Book of the Year award in 1997 and 2007.
