Chris Townsend: Walking The Spine Of Scotland Literary Lunch @ Pitlochry Festival Theatre

Chris Townsend, passionate hillwalker and backpacker, is currently Hillwalking Ambassador for the British Mountaineering Council. Here he turns his attention to the spine of Scotland, ‘The Watershed’ which runs between the Atlantic and the North Sea, covering 1200km and describes his walk along the line where fallen rain runs either west to the Atlantic or east to the North Sea, showing us some of the stunning images he’s taken along the way. But this tale isn’t just a travelogue, instead Chris will reflect on nature and history, conservation and rewilding, land use and literature, and change in a time of limitless potential for both better and worse.

12.45pm – 2.15pm | £24.50 includes a two course lunch and coffee or tea.

Gary Sutherland: Walk This Way @ Pitlochry Festival Theatre
Feb 14 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Gary Sutherland: Walk This Way @ Pitlochry Festival Theatre

Gary Sutherland is not your typical nature writer. He lived on the doorstep of the West Highland Way for many years, ignoring it, until one day he started to walk – and walk and walk. Gary tells how hills gave him the heebiejeebies, and forests frightened him. Add to that his deep aversion to most forms of wildlife. Then, one day, he decided to tackle the West Highland Way… and the Great Glen Way… and the Speyside Way. This is a tale – with images – of courage, cows, resilience, feral goats, ambition, Belgians, ludicrous ledges, cataclysmic quagmires and creepy messages spelt out in pine cones!

3.00pm – 4.00pm | £8.50

In 1918, more than 200 men perished when His Majesty’s Admiralty Yacht, Iolaire sank, just outside Stornoway Harbour. It was one of the worst shipping disasters in British history. The 100th anniversary of the Iolaire disaster is a time to remember, and we’re doing just that in this event. Donald S. Murray will discuss his fictional account of the tragedy, As The Women Lay Dreaming, while John MacLeod brings us a factual story from the day that so many Scottish hearts were broken. Join us for what will surely be a moving and fascinating discussion.

Rosemary Goring: Scotland: Her Story Literary Lunch SOLD OUT @ Pitlochry Festival Theatre | Scotland | United Kingdom

Scotland’s history has been told many times, but never exclusively by its women. Rosemary takes a unique perspective on dramatic national events, as well as ordinary life, as experienced by women down the centuries. From the saintly but severe medieval Queen Margaret, via Nan Shepherd and Muriel Spark, to today’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, Rosemary encompasses women from all stations and fame and brings to life the half of history that has for too long been hidden or ignored.

Penny Junor: All The Queen’s Corgis @ Pitlochry Festival Theatre
Feb 16 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Penny Junor: All The Queen’s Corgis @ Pitlochry Festival Theatre

The Queen has had corgis by her side ever since she was seven years old and persuaded her father to buy one for the family. The dogs are the Queen’s constant companions and Jenny’s book reveals the scraps and scrapes in which the dogs have been involved.

Daughter of Sir John Junor and school-mate of Princess Anne, journalist, TV presenter and popular writer, Penny Junor is possibly best known for her royal biographies, originating with Diana: Princess of Wales, earning her the label of ‘royal expert’. This is a fascinating and affectionate look at the Queen and her most faithful companions on what really makes our much-loved and longest reigning monarch truly light up.
