James Hunter at Faclan: The Hebridean Book Festival

Insurrection: Scotland’s Famine Winter, a new book by one of our finest historians James Hunter, tells the story of the Islands and West Highlands famine of the 1840s and the subsequent riots over the price of food.

Find out more about a dramatic yet largely forgotten slice of Hebridean history, in this Faclan: the Hebridean Book Festival afternoon event.

Event is sponsored by Lews Castle College, University of the Highlands and Islands.
