A REVISED version of a successful book based on a Wester Ross girl’s diary offers a fascinating glimpse into family life in a small crofting community in wartime.

Rena’s Diary: Life in a Scottish Crofting Community, is built around a diary Rena MacLennan kept in 1943 when she was 16 and living on a croft in Durnamuck, Dundonnell, at Little Loch Broom in Wester Ross during World War II.

Rena records the day-to-day activities involved in a crofting community, working at seasonal jobs on local estates and living close to the wartime activities taking place at Gruinard Island and at Loch Ewe.
