eBook also available from the iBookstore

From the the author of the Highland classic A Croft in the Hills, this illustrated book celebrates one of mankind’s oldest pleasures. Month by month we are taken through a year in the life of Katharine Stewart’s garden. The circle of the seasons is luminously evoked as we are told of the practicalities of gardening, cooking, bee-keeping and wine-making. Peppered with warm,personal insights, good humour and a love of living things, the joy of nature has never sounded so rewarding.

Katherine Stewart lived on a croft at Abriachan, near Loch Ness, for many years. This book is the first in a series, which includes A Croft in the Hills, A School in the Hills and The Post in the Hills. Katharine died, aged ninety-eight, in March 2013.
