#5 The Angel of Camasunary

Skye, late September 1981. A young woman sits in a dark bothy, staring into a fire. A pair of flimsy shoes are propped next to her, drying in the heat, and a kettle comes to the boil. Who was the Angel of Camasunary and where did she go? Hillwalker and photographer Duncan McCallum tells the story.



Blue Dot Sessions, Kai Engel and Amy Sayer. The pipe music is from an ancient LP. It’s Pipe Major William Ross playing Too long in this condition and was recorded in 1944.


Thanks to Pennie Latin for playing Freya and to Huw Williams for editing help.
