Having survived the terrible abuse at the hands of his stepfather‚ Stuart had to reach within himself and survive the degradation of prison. He was released back into the world without any support or counselling from the authorities.
The child abuse and prison court cases had almost destroyed him‚ and he became reliant on drugs and alcohol. Stuart's life spiralled out of control‚ and he attempted suicide a number of times. The last attempt took him to the point of death‚ and left the doctors that resuscitated him incredulous he had survived.
At the point of no-return‚ Stuart was sent to Castle Craig Hospital‚ an imposing old building in the Scottish highlands to fight the demons that assailed him.
This is the remarkable story of the 'naughty little boy's final fight to be his own man.
