About this title


This work looks at the everyday life of John Barrington, a shepherd to over 750 Blackface ewes who graze near some of Britain's most beautiful hills overlooking Loch Katrine.

About the Author:

John Barrington is a hill shepherd, living in Rob Roy MacGregor's old house in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. With his faithful companions, Barrington gives sheepdog demonstrations throughout the summer and keeps active over the long winter as a rugby referee. A noted sheep judge, he was delighted recently to be invited to officiate at the Royal Highland Show in Edinburgh. Like most shepherds, Barrington is a natural storyteller, a gift he excercises at schools, clubs and societies, and as an after dinner speaker. Stories are recounted on the move during daytime guided tours and twilight ghost walks, and as a commentator at a dozen or so Highland Games each year. Stories told to enliven his whisky tasting sessions are always presented in the right spirit! Red Sky at Night, his first book and a UK bestseller, won him a Scottish Arts Council Book Award. His Fourth book, Of Dogs & Men, is due to be published soon.
