‘In this translation, Alexander MacDonald’s epic song in homage to ocean, ship and sailors, sings with equally melodious eloquence in the guest language. One of the greatest poems in Gaelic lives again in this vibrant new guise that will bring many of us back to the original. Two for the price of one!’– Aonghas MacNeacail

‘This is a terrific rendering of the poem and very much for the 21st century… The words “the best yet” spring immediately to mind.’ – Ronald Black

‘Quite extraordinary, a triumph, and makes the thing live as no other version I have read. Full of weather, and sea, and vigour.’ – Andrew McNeillie
