Calum's Road/Hutchinson, Ro/Hardb/1862547394/S016-E
A moving story of stubbornly heroic resistance and of extraordinary personal achievement.
At the age of 56, Calum MacLeod, the last man left in northern Raasay, an island in a tiny archipelago situated off the Isle of Skye, set about single-handedly constructing the road others deemed ‘impossible’. It would become a romantic, quixotic venture, a kind of sculpture; an obsessive work of art so perfect in every gradient, culvert and supporting wall that its creation occupied almost twenty years of his life. In Calum’s Road, award-winning author and journalist Roger Hutchinson, recounts the extraordinary story of this remarkable man’s devotion to his visionary project.
