Great film - now at last available on VHS!
21 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent film of a Scotland that has long since disappeared. Hard to find on VHS, but Amazon in the United Kingdom are now selling, copies. Well worth buying.

In 'The Rugged Island' a crofting couple living on the Shetland Isles are faced with choosing a new future overseas or staying just where they are. The VHS tape also contains the film 'Eriskay', which features the people of the Hebrides during the summer of 1934.

These old Scottish non-fiction shorts are an extraordinary way of looking back at a bygone age, history (almost) in the raw, and a world that might almost be another planet from a 21st century point-of-view.
