It’s no secret that I think Scotland is one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
Apart from the midges. They ain’t so beautiful.
It’s also no secret that I take a snap or two (or a dozen) from time to time.
And in August I’m heading with pals to one of THE most photogenic parts of the country.
Isle of Skye – here we come!
I’ll be joining superstar authors Caro Ramsay (nominated for this year’s McIlvanney Award, don’tchaknow?) and Michael Malone on the island for Crime at the Clan.
Yes, we’ll be talking crime – and in a castle.
This’ll be my second such event in a stately home after the Glamis spectacular earlier this year.
I’m really looking forward to the trip, not just for the destination and the event but also because I’ll be travelling through some pretty fabulous scenery.
I predict lots of oohs and aahs and stop the car, I need to take a photie.
They won’t be pals by the end of this trip…

Caro and Michael will also be doing workshops. They really know what they’re about so if you’re a crime writer, get your place booked. Information here:
I have been to Skye before, but only have one photo for some reason. At least, I think this was Skye! The dog is Charlie and he was a well-travelled Bearded Collie. Loved the car, loved to go place – and people smiled at him wherever he went. He’s been gone a long time now and this pic of him was a scan of a hard copy. Why I can’t find any other shots of Skye I don’t know.
