a picture from Anna
Anna is one of my ex-students and sadly for all of us at Columba College, returned with her wonderful family back to Scotland. Anna was in my class last year when I began Banquo's Son and her dad lent me a great book about Scottish history. It's very useful when you are writing a book set in Scotland (a place I've yet to visit) and you have Scottish students and friends to fill in the gaps (and translate bits).
The castle behind Anna is called Dunnottar Castle and was the set for 'Hamlet' with Mel Gibson.
Thanks, Anna. Nice to see that weather in Scotland is not always wet.
