Beatha Robin De la Lanne Mirrlees - Tha an neach-naidheachd Iain X MacIomhair a' cur seachad ùine le Count Robin a bha mar dhuine òg gu math beartach agus na charaid de theaghlaichean rìoghail na Roinn Eòrpa. Cuideachd, tha aon de na caractaran anns an leabhar aig Ian Fleming 'On His Majesty's Secret Service' stèidhichte air. An-diugh, chan eil mòran airgid aige agus e a-nis a' fuireach air eilean beag anns h-Eileanan Siar a cheannaich e anns na 60an.

The life and times of Robin de la Lanne Mirrlees. Journalist Iain X Maciver spends time with the Count who as a young man with a vast fortune was part of the European royal set and who famously inspired one of Ian Fleming's characters in the Bond novel On His Majesty's Secret Service. Today the Count lives virtually penniless on a small island in the Hebrides which he purchased on a whim in the Sixties.
