In his forties, Malcolm gave up his Glasgow job when he saw the advert, 'urgent: island doctor needed'. Malcolm describes what it's like adjusting to life without modern conveniences, to the extreme weather, and what it means to be providing the best medical care to the local population with limited resources. Which often includes the wildlife as well... Malcolm's journey evokes the awe that Orkney can inspire, as well as the challenges of island life and the demons that the dark, cold winter months can give birth to.
