Enter the wonderful world of the Highland Estate with two fascinating writers. Mary Miers will introduce some of the most dramatic and little-known houses in the romantic north of Scotland, with some specially commissioned images, many from the world famous Country Life picture archive. Christina Noble will focus on one estate – Ardkinglas, a 45,000-acre estate at the head of Loch Fyne – now famous for its Oyster Bar. She’ll tell the story of the estate, based on personal memories, letters and household diaries – from her great-grandfather buying the estate in 1905, to the community Ardkinglas has become today, looking at a Highland estate in the modern world and asking what is it for?
