  • Setting
    A Remote Scottish Island in 1939
  • Overview
    Two ornithologists are sent to catalogue the bird colonies on the island. Together with the stern lease-holder of the island, Mr Kirk, and his young niece Ellen, they are the only inhabitants for the summer.

    Outlying Islands ruthlessly uncovers the motivations of its characters, resulting in a painful triangle between John, Robert and Ellen. It's about nature versus technology, old versus new, with the threat of the coming war looming over it all.
