Just before our holidays got started in December, Lilias Fraser and I traveled to the Great North, visiting SPL branch libraries in Inverness and Skye. It was a beautiful trip and we got to meet some brilliant poets working up in the Highlands. So, here is the first of the Highland Podcasts featuring the intrepid, poet, novelist, screenwriter Hamish MacDonald. Hamish helps run Moniack Mhor which is a splendid writers’ retreat up near Inverness. It is isolated and lovely and filled to the gills with excellent literature and fantastic workshops and seminars. They’ve always been very good to The Golden Hour crew so if you are looking for a beautiful place to go and work on some writing, you should check them out. Enjoy the podcast!
