Bloody Scotland by Various (Historic Environment Scotland, 2019)
If you are anything like my sisters-in-law, no holiday is complete without a good crime novel. Having just been to the launch of the Bloody Scotland festival (in Stirling, in September, fabulous line up), I thought I would read the Bloody Scotland collection of short stories (ISBN: 98718949176668). Penned by some of Scotland’s best known crime writers, each of the stories is set in a Scottish landmark. Some are gruesome, some are heart-wrenching, some will stay, worryingly, in your head (you’ve been warned); all are good reads.
