Written as a personal guide to the sights and sounds of Lindisfarne gleaned from six years as a "part-time islander", this book is an appreciation of local knowledge shared by some of its inhabitants. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is a haven for the countless visitors who have travelled to its historic location over the centuries. People visit it for solitude or spiritual refreshment, a glimpse of a rare species of bird, or for artistic inspiration. The island has been home for centuries of islanders who have seen the ebb and flow of change. Where once the feet of Aidan and Cuthbert trod, there is now a lively tourist trade, complete with bed and breakfasts and boat trips.
