‘We’ve put his ashes in the sea because he’s at home there’

LATE in the summer of last year, around 10 weeks before his death, fisherman Alasdair Macleod was visiting the island of Lismore and stopped in to pay his respects to the son of a farmer who had passed away. Over a dram, they reminisced, honouring the old man’s life in whisky and memory. “We keep these people with us,” Macleod later wrote on his blog, Applecrosslife, “by telling and retelling their stories.”
