ISBN Cover Title Author Publisher Year Description Ref.
0953503682 Coasting around Scotland Fairweather, Nicholas Cualann Press 2002 This is the story of a cycling trip around the coast of Scotland, mainly on the mainland but with excursions to islands such as Arran, Mull, Skye and Orkney. The route starts at Portpatrick and ends the coastal journey at St Abbs Head, before a cross-country journey to the Mull of Galloway. 226
 0954441648 Golf Club Maker: Thomas Carruthers (1840-1924) Tom Carruthers Cualann Press 2004 Written by the subject`s great-grandson, this is the story of one of the world`s most innovative golf club makers. After a successful career as a professional sprinter, in the 1880s Carruthers started making golf clubs and his own patent for the through-bore short socket for metal golf clubs was acknowledged as an important technical advance which was then used by manufacturers on both sides of the Atlantic. Carruthers lived in Edinburgh beside the city`s Bruntisfield course. 1532
0954441664 Hebridean Gurkha Neil Griffiths Cualann Press 2005 This is the story of the author and five Gurkha soldiers on a walk through Lewis, Harris, the Uists and Barra. This was probably the first-ever visit by Gurkhas to this part of Scotland and the landscape they tramped through is certainly very far removed from what they were used to in their mountainous homeland. Their story is of making friends, learning about the islanders` culture and, inevitably, about the ever-changing weather. 1533
0954441605 Gurkha Reiver: Walking the Southern Upland Way Griffiths, Neil Cualann Press 2003 Most walkers who tackle the 340km (212 mile) long Southern Upland Way do it for pleasure. Only a few intrepid people do it as a fundraising event. And while most fit and experienced walkers might take a couple of weeks to walk the Way, the three Gurkha soldiers in this travelogue took only eight and a half days. This is their story … and of the author who did his best to keep up with them! 988
0954441621 Burns Boys, The Renwick, Alistair Cualann Press 2003 This is essentially the story of Robert Burns, grandson of the poet of the same name. In 1846 he sailed east and worked as a trader in Singapore and Borneo. In Sarawak his path crossed that of James Brooke (1803-68), the first of the "White Rajahs" of Sarawak. He then undertook an exploration of parts of Sarawak and attempted to mine antimony but he was killed by pirates in 1851. 989
0953503631 Of Fish and Men: Tales of a Scottish Fisher Mills, Derek; Watson, David C. Cualann Press 2000 This is a collection of personal anecdotes collected from nearly forty years of fishing in Scotland. In addition, there are comments about the ways of the countryside and life in general in Scotland, particularly in the 1970s and 1980s. 991
0954441672 Of Fish and Men: Tales of a Scottish Fisher David C. Watson Cualann Press 2005 This expanded version of the 2000 edition adds the author`s own thoughts about mid-life crisis. 1534
0953503674 In Search of Willie Patterson Reid, Fred Cualann Press 2002 This biography of Willie Patterson (born in 1883) is written by his grandson, a professional historian. Willie was called "the black sheep of the family" and the author has tried to unravel the story of his life from his childhood in Glasgow`s Calton to his time in the British Army and his return to the politically-turbulent Clydeside. The story touches on many issues: the harshness of a Glasgow childhood, the brutality of army life, the prevalence of syphilis amongst the soldiers, the breakup of a marriage and the politics of Red Clydeside. 994
0953503607 Under the Shadow: Letters of Love and War, 1911-17 - The Poignant Testimony and Story of Hugh Wallace Mann and Jessie Reid Mann, Hugh Wallace; Reid, Jessie; Hetherington, Bríd Cualann Press 1999 This poignant collection of letters is centred on the war-time correspondence between Hugh Wallace Mann and his wife Jessie (née Reid). Both were students at Glasgow University and were married in 1914 on the day he signed up for service in the British Army. He survived the horrors of Loos and Arras but was fatally wounded at Passchendaele in 1917. During his time away, Jessie had been spirited off to the banks of Loch Tay to move her and their child away from the social prejudice so prevalent Glasgow`s middle class. 995
0953503623 On Flows the Tay: Perth and the First World War Harding, Bill Cualann Press 2000 This is a study of how the county town of Perth was affected by the events of the First World War. It deals with the soldiers and their families and, more unusually for a book about the Great War, it describes how the life of the town was changed … forever. Social habits, social values and everyday events; these are described and examined for the changes they underwent. 228
