Alastair’s Abachan is a landscape incantation, written in Lybster, Caithness at a time of crisis. He notes: “it is unlikely that I will make another filmpoem with a poem of my own. This is for my mother.” And this has proved to be the case.¬†It was premiered at the Scottish Centre for Geopoetics at Brantwood, John Ruskin’s house on Coniston in the Lake District, March 26th 2011.¬†With thanks to David Fyans and Victoria MacRae.
