As  Fine Arts, Books Editor, and an architectural writer for Country Life, and founder of Scotland’s Buildings at Risk Register, Mary Miers is a leading authority on the architecture of the Scottish Highlands. In her latest publication, Highland Retreats, Mary takes her reader on a fascinating journey from the late 18th Century to the present day. This beautifully produced volume explores the history of the Scottish shooting lodge, marrying meticulous research with lavish photography of picturesque cottages, Scots baronial castles, modern eco-lodges, and more.

We invite you to share in Mary’s expertise, and to celebrate a work that Adam Nicolson, author of The Seabird’s Cry, characterises as ‘scholarly, original, witty, and beautiful’. We would be delighted if you could join us for what is sure to be a remarkable and insightful evening of Scotland’s most impressive architectural and interior design.
