The Scottish Writer's Retreat

This Georgian house, replete with period details, will be our home for a week. It has been the Boswell family home for centuries and contains a collection of items related to its most famous resident, diarist James Boswell. Steeped in history, the house is in all ways a comfortable home. Feel free to select a book and read in the library, relax by the fire in the drawing room, walk the estate grounds to the castle ruins, grotto or ice house or bang out a few chapters of your WIP on your laptop – the house has WiFi. Our week will include a mix of days out and days in, allowing you to experience life in a country house as well as the opportunity to explore the rich Scottish history in the area. Day trips will offer research at stately homes, museums, charming time capsule villages and ducal properties. Cozy evenings spent honing your craft with your fellow authors.
