A Fair Isle Nurse

Regular price £9.99

Memoirs of the only medical professional in Fair Isle in the mid 1960s.


Often surrounded by sea mist or racked by relentless gales, the island of Fair Isle runs to its own rhythms.

In the mid 1960s a young nurse arrived to begin working here, one of the most remote inhabited islands in Britain

She would be the sole provider of medical care for the local population.

Her coming of age was dependent on the acceptance, support and kindness of the Fair Isle people. Would she succeed?
