the f fac­tors

The Field - - Letters -

Emily Ar­buth­nott’s ar­ti­cle (The X Fac­tors, Au­gust is­sue) re­minded me of an evening spent in the pub in Knoy­dart a few years ago.

Talk­ing to the lo­cal es­tate stalker, I men­tioned that I was fac­tor to an es­tate in the south of Eng­land. His re­sponse was, “There are four Fs in Scot­land: Farm­ing, Forestry and F ***** g Fac­tors.” I am glad to read the im­age may have mel­lowed some­what. Oliver Cham­ber­lain, Ib­ber­ton, Dorset
