Mull, Iona and Staffa is Malcolm MacGregor's second book of landscape photography in Scotland. Here he has travelled throughout these three islands in pursuit of Hebridean light. Conscious that these islands are not an appendage to the western highlands of Scotland, but rather command their seaborne approaches, he has sought through a photographic journey to reveal their uniqueness and special qualities. His excursions have taken him from Fingal's Cave on Staffa to St. Columba's landing place on Iona. On Mull he has ventured from the high tops around Ben More to the desolate Ardmeanach peninsula. The photographs in this book cover mountains, hills, coastline, rivers and isolated gems such as waterfalls and frozen hill lochs. Additionally he has photographed churches, castles, ancient graveyards, fishing vessels, celtic crosses, standing stones and remnants of a bygone age bringing a fresh perspective to these renowned islands. The accompanying text weaves the landscape into the life, history and some of the legends that continue today. It also covers some of the lesser known aspects and viewpoints of the islands revealing why visitors and pilgrims return here to encounter unique experiences both visually and of a spiritual nature.
