This #sundayreads is another one with incredible voice, although in this case, a collection of voices. Vignettes from people through time who have this mill building in common. I’m enjoying hearing their stories #amreading #sundayreading #scottishbooks ...

#throwbackthursday to June 2004, on #westhighlandway - first of our annual long distance walk expeditions. Round my waist Is a very bulky CD player holder with picket for CDs! Had burnt my own CS compilations as well. Thought I was very up with the technology #walkinguk ...

This #sundayreading is totally captivating. The author @moiramcpartlin is a friend but I’d rave about it anyway. Narrated by a young fairly illiterate lad in Fife dialect whose voice is totally engaging #sundayread #sundayreads #amreading #scottishbooks #scotsdialect #scotsvoices ...

#throwbackthursday to this day 2015 walking the #easthighlandway which was poorly marked and difficult. Just about to ford this river - our third of the day. As you can imagine it was chilly! #amwalking #longdistancepaths #scottishhighlands ...

Thus #sundayreading is 1000 pages long, which I didn’t realise when I ordered it as some light #reading for my mini #writingretreat in #ullapool but it’s just right. A story before bed and... zonk. Think it’s going to take more than a week though #writingcommunity #writersofinstagram #sundayreads #amreading #amreadingscifi ...

#ullapool looking charming as ever. Blue seas and snow on distant hills #nofilterneeded #nofilter #livingthedream #westcoastscotland ...

#throwbackthursday to this day in 2018 and Loch Katrine. It was a beautiful day, we walked around and had a cream tea in the cafe. Simple pleasures #lochkatrine #trossachsnationalpark #trossachs ...

This #sundayreading is a captivating exhilarating read with Shakespearean acting dynasties, twins, fourth wall.... all sorts of delights. #sundayreads #amreading ...

Waiting for inspiration.....#amwritingfiction #blackcatsofinstagram #blackcatsrule ...
