Our Winter 2018/19 competition

The photograph is unlikey to be of much use unless you’ve walked this way, but it stands on one of those long distance routes which criss cross Europe heading for a scallop shell.

What is the destination town? 

The correct answer out of the midnight tophat on April 15th 2019 will be sent a book prize. Entries (only by email please) must be accompanied by a full postal address. No corespondence can be entered into and the judge’s decision is final. Usual rules apply: manufacturers of weapons need not apply.


The answer to the last competition.

Islands in the sun?

The question that was posed: “These lovely holiday houses are on isolated islands in a large archipelago which enjoys the Gulf Stream and are north of the Arctic Circle? There was a raid on them during WWII. Can you name the group of islands?” elicted a variety of answers, some too far north. Thank you to those who took part.

The correct answer is that this photograph is of some summer houses in the Lofoten Islands. The prize should reach the winner in Glasgow during December 2018: she won two autobiographies: Michelle Obama’s ‘Becoming’ , and Hariet Sandys ‘Beyond that Last Blue Mountain’. The latter was given its Scottish launch at The Nomads Tent in early December 2018.
