Christina Noble, author of Ardkinglas, will be speaking with Mary Miers at Winter Words Festival in Pitlochry 14.02.19
14 February 2019

Enter the wonderful world of the Highland Estate with two fascinating writers.

Mary Miers will introduce some of the most dramatic and little-known houses in the romantic north of Scotland, with some specially commissioned images, many from the world famous Country Life picture archive.

Christina Noble will focus on one estate – Ardkinglas, a 45,000-acre estate at the head of Loch Fyne - now famous for its Oyster Bar. She’ll tell the story of the estate, based on personal memories, letters and household diaries - from her great-grandfather buying the estate in 1905, to the community Ardkinglas has become today, looking at a Highland estate in the modern world and asking what is it for? What keeps it going? Who benefits?

Discover the answer to these and other questions on this fascinating world, with the insight of two great speakers.
