Over the Hills from Huntly by Ron Brander

An eclectic exploration of the richly diverse human heritage of that wide landscape south and west of Huntly, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Using much original research it will surprise, enlighten and delight the reader as he or she is led through a landscape of kings and foot soldiers; missionaries and bishops and kirk elders; giants, warlocks and shape-shifters; reivers, drovers and poachers; crofters and lairds; poets and musicians; Picts; Gaels; Normans….and ultimately those who still live and thrive in this hidden and magical part of Scotland.

Ron Brander studied at university in Aberdeen, Hamburg and Edinburgh. After spending many years in the oil industry he now indulges his life time researching and exploring the landscape of his ancestors.

The book is illustrated throughout with colour photographs and excerpts from old newspapers and documents. Soft Cover with in-folds.

Weaving Words

£7.99

The Huntly Writers anthology Weaving Words was one of three runners-up for the 2014 Writers’ Circle Anthology Award run by Writing Magazine.

Weaving Words showcases poetry and prose from one of the largest writing groups in North-East Scotland. The collection contains pieces from both well-established and emerging local writers, including many who have had work appear in literary magazines or released their own publications.

At times moving, funny and surreal, Weaving Words features a range of voices travelling through many different forms and experiences, while remaining rooted in the languages and communities of Huntly and the North-East of Scotland.

Weaving Words is the Huntly Writers’ second collection, following on from Spirit of the Deveron, first released in 2008.

The book, published by Lumphanan Press, is available direct from Huntly Writers using the “Buy Now” button on this page, as well as from Orb’s Bookshop in Huntly, Better Read Books in Ellon, and all good bookshops everywhere.
