Over and over I had proved its usefulness. I might need it to catch a calf or a sheep- to carry a bundle of hay to the cow or a can of paraffin from the grocer- to tie a bundle of driftwood I had collected, or a sack of peat- to secure a boat- make a temporary repair to a sagging fence or a halter for a horse . . . Excepting when they were going on holiday or to church, the Bruach crofters were rarely without a length of rope, either coiled around an arm or protruding from a pocket.’The fourth of Lillian Beckwith’s books on her life on Bruach, A Rope - In Case is packed with hilarious stories and delightful characters. Yet it is never sentimental – always observant.‘Hugely enjoyable fourth book of Hebridean humour and characters’ Manchester Evening News
