Fiona has columns in the Scottish Field and The Courier. She also presents a programme called Border Life which looks at life in the south of Scotland. In January 2016, Fiona was appointed her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant of Dumfries. She is married to a Scottish clan chief, so tartan and clans feature widely in her life.


We were here last night and had to come back today.

We know we will have a lovely time.

It’s been absolutely brilliant, such a lot of hard work has gone into this and it shows.

Nice venue - clean, fresh. Fantastic auditorium.

Excellent. I’ll definitely be back next year. Sally Magnusson was so interesting and inspiring. The calibre of speakers was first class. Thanks so much.

What a brilliant festival! Great authors, lovely venue, & everyone I’ve spoken to is just so friendly!

Fantastic art work from the High School pupils.
