Whispers of Horse Island
Following on the success of The Tragedy of HMS Dasher, which sold out twice, the sequel, They Were Never Told -The Tragedy of HMS Dasher, and Burning Ships, authors Noreen and John Steele have launched their latest book Whispers of Horse Island. Royalties are being donated to Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Horse Island, a small craggy island situated in the Clyde estuary displays a rich scenery and range of birdlife. Only half a mile from the Ayrshire coast, the island's intriguing history is uncovered with tragic tales of tempestuous seas, shipwrecks and lives lost. The Earl of Eglinton's grand plans ruined by a horrendous canal boat disaster.
Now managed by the RSPB , it is a haven for birds. The visit to the island by the authors is a delight to read. Noreen and John have collected a fascinating store of information, observation and anecdote about this little known Island.
