What an adventure. We secured private use of Lunga House, a charming seaside castle, for readings, inspiring writing sessions, and chats about the craft. Then it was off to the Scottish Highlands, venturing through beautiful Glencoe to Inverness, with tours of Loch Ness, Urquhart Castle, and sites such as the moving Culloden Battlefield and the standing stones at Clava Cairns, inspiration for author Diana Gabaldon’s famous Outlander series.
This trip included a visit to Macbeth’s Cawdor Castle, a tour of the incomparable Isle of Skye, and a gorgeous drive through the quintessential Highland villages of Pitlochry and Dunkeld and on to Edinburgh via Cairngorms National Park. In Edinburgh, writers enjoyed the Book Lovers Tour and Literary Pub Tour to visit the haunts of Edinburgh’s literary legends, including Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, Ian Rankin, and J.K.Rowling.
