About the Book
When I published this I did not think it would do as well as it has, nor had I any idea that I was related to this Scots poet until after his death. In his will, he entrusted me to republish this work and bequeathed his other manuscripts into my care. "Sometimes eloquent, clearly heartfelt, the revival of these works by O Siadhail are a welcome addition to the collection of late century Scots poetry. The quality of McKiltscript's work is as variable as the Scottish weather. One moment we are basking in his literary sunshine and yet the next he drowns us with a shower."
