Donald S Murray and John MacLeod: Remembering The Iolaire Disaster
Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Pitlochry Perthshire Scotland PH16 5DR
In 1918, more than 200 men perished when His Majesty’s Admiralty Yacht, Iolaire sank, just outside Stornoway Harbour. It was one of the worst shipping disasters in British history. The 100th anniversary of the Iolaire disaster is a time to remember, and we’re doing just that in this event. Donald S. Murray will discuss his fictional account of the tragedy, As The Women Lay Dreaming, while John MacLeod brings us a factual story from the day that so many Scottish hearts were broken. Join us for what will surely be a moving and fascinating discussion. £8.50 – Tel: 01796 484600 Dir: 01796 484637
