The first ever Gaelic travelogue is to be officially launched at an event in Ness next Thursday.

Author Maureen Macleod, who is a producer of the BBC Alba’s current affairs programme Eòrpa, will read extracts of her new book 'A Toirt Mo Chasan Leam', roughly translated as 'Taking My Feet With Me'.

The new publication details her experiences as she journeys through urban Russia.

The book launch will be held at Comunn Eachdraidh Nis at 7pm on Thursday April 27. 

All are welcome, and refreshments will be available.
