Malcolm Macdonald and Donald John Macleod launch the most comprehensive and definitive book to date on the Iolaire tragedy of 1918, in which over 200 men from Lewis and Harris lost their lives only a few metres from shore when the yacht carrying them home from the First World War was blown onto rocks by a fierce storm.

The launch of this landmark publication by Acair – supported by Lewis historical societies – is one of a series of special events at An Lanntair throughout Winter 2018 to mark the anniversary of an event that had a profound impact on the islands.
