Harbouring a lifelong obsession with Gavin Maxwell's Ring of Bright Water trilogy, Dan Boothby jumped at a chance to move to the author's Highlands home. Island of Dreams is Boothby's story of the history (natural and human) he found there. In A Monstrous Commotion: The Mysteries of Loch Ness, Gareth Williams investigates the scientific community's moves to quash exploration of the ancient loch's mysteries. Part of our The Scotland that Shaped Us series of events.
