After eight expeditions to the high Arctic and one to the Peruvian Amazon, Cape Farewell brings the notion and experience of expedition and exchange home to local frontiers, with an exploration of island ecologies and cultures, and of the stewardship strategies for sustainable and resilient futures being implemented across the Scottish Western Isles.
