Glorious Gentlemen by Bruce Sandison – book review

Just finished reading the Glorious Gentlemen: Tales from Scotland’s Stalkers, Gillies and Keepers by Bruce Sandison. This is kind on unusual book written in a form of interviews mixed with narratives and stories from the author. It shows how gillies, keepers and stalkers see their jobs and their interactions with clients and landowners. It was a good read, but most of the people interviewed in this book were mainly salmon fishing gillies. Although there is some information about deer stalking I would say the book is mainly for fishing enthusiasts and author frequently throws in his experiences making the book reads more like autobiography at times.
