Song of the River


An evocative collection of poems by Alexandria man, Billy Scobie
‘Billy Scobie is the kind of guy that really makes you jealous. He can paint, he writes novels, short stories, poetry and researches and writes about local history. He also designs tartans and even designed a stained glass window which is now installed in Bonhill Church. For most of us , mere mortals, we are happy if we can be good at just one thing… Billy excels at many. But for me the really exceptional thing about Billy is that he remains an unassuming humble guy. Maybe that is the secret of a contented and happy life…. Never to know just how good and gifted you are…….that’s Billy. Read the book and you will agree.’
