THE WRITE STUFF
Nature writer Karen Lloyd is to lead a new writing course in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. Her four-day nature writing workshop will be based at the Grant Arms Hotel in Grantown on Spey. This will include a dynamic mix of field trips to a number of contrasting Cairngorm landscapes with wildlife expert Simon Pawsey, plus a chance to meet ecologists. It runs from 20-25 October.
