I’ll Sing On


This book is the story of Catriona Maclean Mackinnon, a gifted and successful Scottish singer/harpist who lived on Skye. Still a young wife and mother, she was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Showing impressive strength of character, she decided to press on with her commitment to music and her struggle for perfection. In the midst of this, she unexpectedly found Christian faith. Her many letters reveal her spiritual journey in those days.

Loved by many, she was an inspiration to others. As one of her friends said, “All the time, you knew that whatever mood she wore on the surface, underneath it all a deadly fight was going on. She never lowered the flag.”

Gilbert McKinnon was born and brought up on the Isle of Arran. He lived on Skye in the early 1980’s.
