8 February 1926 - 16 February 2021
It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Ruaraidh Hilleary has died on the 16th of February at the age of 95.
Ruaraidh gave me the opportunity to start Skirinish Publishing by publishing his autobiography. Apart from being his publisher, we were neighbours for many years. In those years he has become a dear friend. The years on Skye would not have been the same without him.
His laughter and adventurous spirit will be sadly missed.
The Highlander's Prayer
Oh that the peats would cut themselves
And the fish jump out on the shore
And I would sit by the fireside
And sleep forever more
