"At eighty-four, she begins to feel something in her bones, to clear and tidy her things, to see a long way. Strong, knotted hands open a forgotten drawer, fingers move papers, fall on a typed manuscript. She takes it to a garden chair above the river and reads. By the end, the light has changed, and all colour gathered to the western hills. Beyond, lies the mountain."
The Hidden Fires: A Cairngorms Journey with Nan Shepherd
This beautiful image of Nan Shepherd opens the show `In a New Light`, premiering at the Cairngorms Nature Festival this week. Bringing together readings from my book, music from Hamish Napier and images of the Cairngorms, it promises to be a very special celebration of these mountains, of Nan Shepherd, and of two contemporary artists responding to her work and this iconic range.
7pm, 17th May
Glenbuchat Hall, Strathdon
