I’ve always had a passion for unearthing historical gems about people and places. I live on the Craignish peninsula in Argyll, and I write about the wonderful history and wildlife of this landscape on my other blog, The Hazel Tree.
I was invited to become Writer in Residence at the RSGS in 2016. Someone recently remarked that I must have the best job in the world, and I totally agree with them! For the last four years or so I’ve been happily digging around in the RSGS archives, looking for exciting and interesting stories and sharing them through magazine and blog articles, and through my new book, ‘The Great Horizon’. In February 2018 I was hugely honoured to receive the Diploma of Fellowship of the Society.
