On this very cold, damp day, I've just found out that this is where I'll be going on holiday next year. I put it all down to reading this book.

I'm so envious Mary. I loved those books. All that space, lovely.

I've wanted to go there ever since I read the trilogy, lucky you

I can't get over myself being so organised. I have never in my life booked a holiday more than a week before departure, Sue. Even booked the flight in case incredibly cheap offer expires in N Year.

I've stood on the mainland looking out at Jura but never actually been to any of the Scottish islands, Janet - so I'm really looking forward to it. And to the whisky.

I am positively green here. Loved those books and thought I was doing well reading them in remote(ish) Argyll. It looks amazing. Ax

Try not to tumble down that hill if you go outside in the evening after a tumbler of whiskey, Mary. You could end up having a bracing swim!

The scenery looks stunning, lucky you. And thanks for highlighting the books...I choose books for an elderly woman who loves Scotland and mysteries. Off to place a hold for her.

Not sure it's suitable for old ladies, Darlene. The ending is rather disturbing ... and if she's a birdlover, I'd say definitely no! It was very gripping, though.

Sue said...

Darlene, has she read the Shetland books by Ann Cleeves? Also crime stories but perhaps not quite so disturbing.

Judging by the rocks holding down the thatch , it might be just a wee bit bracing ! But the welcome will be as warm as the views are spectacular .

Yes, doubt I'll come back with a suntan! But I'm not great in warm weather so that's fine.
