Great little boats - Para Handy tales fired my imagination with an interest in the West coast Highlands and Islands and I'm pleased to say the reality lived up to my imaginings and more . Beautiful, awe inspiring scenery that I love to be amongst .

Thanks Neil, first time I read the book I had sore cheek muscles and ribs with laughing. It was before it was televised so I wasn't influenced in any way.

Para Handy's Tales by Neil Munro. It was originally written as short stories in a Glasgow News Paper in the 1930s. If you like the book, there are also DVDs of both TV series, probably Amazon.

Same here Jim - I read the book well before the TV series and loved it. My sister moved to the Isle of Mull just around then . A ferry trip across to there in beautiful sunshine coupled with wary locals watching you as you stood at the bus stop - twas as if Dougie himself was guiding me!
