    Memoirs of William Collie, a 19th century deer stalker.

    Hi all,

    Just back from Scotland and while i was up there i stopped in Plockton for lunch. Had a look in a little shop and found this book. It's reading well so far, so i thought I'd mention it to see if it's well known among you and to give you all a heads up about it if it's not.

    All the best,

    Nick

    Owning a gun or knife and not using it, is akin to not sleeping with your girlfriend to keep her neat and tidy for the next bloke.

    Hi Digger,

    I too have a copy and it is an escellent read. Their are a number of books on stalking pblished around the turn of the 20th C that really do capture the romance of a highland stalker and their way of life. Enjoy.

    Good book ! another is "the wild red deer of scotland" by Allan gordon cameron. worth grabbing if you get the chance .
    "half a century of scottish deer stalking " by G Kenneth Whitehead can be pricey but has a wealth of info and interest.
