As part of Faclan: the Hebridean Book Festival, an author and a visual artist compare notes across two fascinating, insightful events, one after the other on the same evening.

Here, Dan Richards discusses his new book Outpost: A Journey to the Wild Ends of the Earth (‘by turns beautiful, funny, evocative and learned’ – The Observer), in which he travels to mountains, tundra, forests, oceans and deserts to embrace the appeal of isolation.

His event is twinned with Tìde in which land artist Julie Brook expounds on the philosophy behind her dramatic, elemental sea fire-stacks; conceived on Jura and reignited phoenix-like on the west coast of Lewis.
