A Long and Tangled Saga, by Dr Bob Chambers, chronicles the 2015 community buyout of the 28,500-acre Pairc Estate in the south-east of Lewis. The buyout took thirteen years to complete and has become a landmark case in the history of land reform in Scotland.

Dr Chambers is the recognised authority on Hebridean land resettlement. He is the author of many books on the subject and has researched and written extensively on the Hebrides.

At this Faclan event, he discusses the achievement, struggles and lessons learned with Agnes Rennie of Acair Books, publishers of A Long and Tangled Saga.
