Stevenson – Burns – Murray

Off to the south banks of the River North Esk that flows below Hawthornden – pictured – in Lasswade, Midlothian, Kingdom of Scotland.

I’ll be working in a cave or tower of the Hawthornden Castle – once the home of poet William Drummond (1585-1649) – thanks to a writing fellowship supported by Drue Heinz.

Hoping to catch a spark from the Scots-Lallan (Burns) or the music of RL Stevenson, CA Duffy, or Don Paterson.

If not, perhaps something of Suhayl Saadi or Trainspotting will rub off.

Not Glasgow, but it will do. Haggis: here I come.
