8. The Hills Is Lonely by Lillian Beckwith

ISBN 0099066203 - Arrow Books ,1959
When Lillian Beckwith arrives in the Hebrides she initially feels she's made a big mistake travelling there for a rest-cure. She quickly becomes enamoured with the island, its inhabitants and their way of life.
This is the first in a series of semi-autobiographical books that are chock full of eccentric scots, comical anecdotes and vignettes of the crofter's traditional way of life.
