Main Street Trading Company Books, travelling editorEvery time I go to Scotland on the sleeper I’m a bit The Lady Vanishes and The Thirty Nine Steps about the train, always expecting something dramatic to happen (still living in hope…).

Driving down south from Edinburgh to St Boswells with Jack (our legendary Hodder man in Scotland) took us through the spectacular Scottish Borders to the very pretty village of St Boswells. It clearly does rain in Scotland but whenever I go it’s sunny and spectacular with added rainbows, the whole country looks like it’s prepped for a calendar shoot.
