St Kilda shortlisted for Saltire Award. / by Alex Boyd

I’m delighted to announce that St Kilda - The Silent Islands has been shortlisted for a Saltire Society Award. Nominated for the First Book award, it has been selected alongside Mick Kitson, Christina Neuwirth and Calum L. MacLeòid.

The winner will be announced at a ceremony in Edinburgh in November.

Widely regarded as Scotland’s most prestigious book awards, the Saltire Literary Awards are organised by the Saltire Society, a non-political independent charity founded in 1936 which celebrates the Scottish imagination, and are supported by Creative Scotland.
