Passing Glimpses - Poems by The Bard O'Bogmonie - £2.50

We've had a rare treat delivered to us this week all the way from sunny Kilmallie. Published by Kilmallie Community Council we've a limited stock of these poetry books to sell in The Highland Bookshop.

John Wilson (Johnny) was born at Tomonie in 1892, one of a family of six children. For many years he worked on the railway, in the signal boxes at Banavie and Mallaig. In his spare time he made toys, and wrote poetry about anything and everything, calling himself the Bard O'Bogmonie.

Many of his poems are about bygone times in Kilmallie and are well-known. He died in 1980.

We are now open 9am until 9pm Monday to Saturday
