Cicerone authors Dan Bailey and Kirstie Shirra will be appearing at the Three Lochs Book and Arts Festival later this month.
The varied event is from Thursday 20 – Saturday 22 September, and promises to be an inspiring festival of film, photography, music, art and literature on the shores of beautiful Loch Sunart.
Come along and meet Dan and Kirstie at their talk – From peak to page: Insights into the world of guidebook writing – at 10:30 on Saturday 22 September (Sunart Centre F.E Room / Entry with Day Ticket).
Dan and Kirstie will explore the highs and lows of walking writing with tales from their travels and advice for budding authors.
Kirstie is a freelance writer and environmental campaigner, based in Ardnamurchan. She has written two guidebooks for Cicerone – a guide to the GR7 route in Andalucia, and a guide to Scotland’s Best Small Mountains, somewhat of an antidote to Munro-bagging.
She also writes regularly for other publications and walking magazines, including Trail.
Fife-based outdoor journalist, photographer and author Dan is never happier than when up a mountain and has a particular passion for the Highlands. He has written several books on the subject, including Scotland’s Mountain Ridges, a guidebook for scramblers and climbers, and Great Mountain Days in Scotland, a bumper book of epic hillwalks.
