- The Red Squirrel: A future in the forest
This stunning new book has just arrived at the Ullapool Bookshop: ‘The Red Squirrel: A Future in the Forest’ priced £25. There is no British mammal that captures our hearts as the native red squirrel. No-one has dedicated more time to documenting the life of the red squirrel than photographer Neil McIntrye. With stunning photographs taken around the ancient pine forests surrounding his Cairngorms home, the photographer has captured the real life and mischieviousness of the squirrel itself.
I’m sure that this will be popular book over the winter and as a potential Christmas gift too.
