The Stornoway Historical Society adds its congratulations to the many already made to our Chairman, Malcolm Macdonald on the publication of “The Darkest Dawn – the story of the Iolaire Tragedy”, co-authored with the late Donald John Macleod and published by Acair Books priced £25.00.

This magnificent work, completed just ahead of the centenary of the sinking, will surely be recognised as the definitive account of this sad moment in our island history. The book is available directly from Acair at http://www.acairbooks.com/categories/non-fiction-titles/history-and-reference-titles/the-darkest-dawn.aspx or from local bookshops.
