BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Talking Point -

In April 2019 join the BBC Wildlife team for a week of nat­u­ral his­tory talks, book sign­ings and guided walks in the Scot­tish High­lands.

T he Grant Arms Wildlife Book Fes­ti­val, now in its sec­ond year, is a gath­er­ing in the Scot­tish High­lands of some of the most prom­i­nent au­thors in the field of nat­u­ral his­tory. The fes­ti­val, hosted by the Grant Arms Ho­tel in Gran­townon Spey, runs from 15-19 April 2019 and fea­tures daily talks given by the par­tic­i­pat­ing au­thors, who will also be min­gling with the guests and sign­ing books. The dis­cus­sion fol­low­ing each talk will be led by nat­u­ral­ist and for­mer BBC nat­u­ral his­tory pro­ducer Stephen Moss – him­self a pop­u­lar au­thor of books about Bri­tish wildlife.

The four-star Grant Arms is a spe­cial­ist wildlife ho­tel with a dis­tin­guished his­tory. Built in 1765, in the reign of Ge­orge III, and sit­u­ated within the Cairn­gorms Na­tional Park close to Ana­gach Woods and the River Spey, the ho­tel is a tra­di­tional Scot­tish build­ing, taste­fully re­fur­bished to thor­oughly mod­ern stan­dards of com­fort, with en-suite be­d­rooms, a cosy bar and a one-rosette restau­rant serv­ing lo­cally sourced food.
