Birlinn Authors to the Fore at Fingask

Fingask Castle, Perthshire
It was wall to wall Birlinn authors at Fingask Castle last week for a very sunny literary event! Gillian Galbraith, with her Alice Rice Mysteries lent a touch of gritty reality to the picture-perfect surroundings, whilst Lady Mary McGrigor swept everyone to the snowy wilds of Russia with The Tsar’s Doctor and Andrew Orr and Angus Whitson talked up a storm about Sea Dog Bamse.

Author of This Too Shall Pass – amongst other excellent books – Roddy Martine said "It's a huge pleasure for authors to come together and share literary interests in such stunning surroundings in Perthshire".
