What a shame this book is out of print. The images are so resonant of crofting life - though the actual prints are a little dark - and the text packs in a lot of information.

What a shame this book is out of print. Clearly both writer and photogrpher have a true love of the Far North.

Glyn Satterley is known for his images of Scottish sporting estates, but in these images he documents life in the areas of Caithness and Sutherland. Many believed that the oil industry brought wealth and prosperity to the whole of Scotland, Satterley's images attempt to show a different side to the story. In these photographs, a woman tosses a broom in Dunbeath and a weaver works her loom in Brora Mill. Potatoes are picked in John O'Groats and in a hotel in Golspie, women hand-fold and assemble The Northern Times ready for publication.

From the series 'Life in Caithness & Sutherland' printed as part of the exhibition 'Scotland's Far North' (2017). This body of work from the late 1970s provide a unique insight into Scotlandʼs remote landscape, islands and people. Brought up in Kent, Glyn Satterley is best known for his books on ‘Scottish Sporting Estates, and his evocative and sometimes quirky images of landscape and people. Life in Caithness and Sutherland’ preceded this work, and he considers the two years spent commuting from Kent by caravanette as his photographic apprenticeship. It was a welcome release after a Fine Art degree in painting, and his unique style developed during this period.
