Grantown Nature Festival, May 16th - Scottish Watershed Talk.

On the Scottish Watershed in the Fannichs

On Saturday May 16th my excellent local bookshop, The Bookmark, is organising a festival of talks by five nature writers, including myself. (Am I a nature writer? In some respects I guess so). I'll be talking about my Scottish Watershed walk.

The Bookmark has produced a really nice poster for the event which you can find in the box below. My computer skills failed to enlarge it to page size so I've pasted the information here. I don't know where the description of myself as 'mountaineer and pathfinder'comes from!
