'A literary gem' Inverness Courier


An instant success on its first printing, 'Snow on the Ben' was a Christmas 2014 best-seller in the Inverness area. The book is an informative, humorous explanation of  the words and phrases used in the 'Highland Capital', many of which are unique to the area, as well as a series of observations on Inverness's culture, history, characters, and much else.


Writen by an Invernessian, who escaped to London over forty years ago, the book is a nostalgic, affectionate and wry guide to Inverness. Unlike most guidebooks, it concentrates on the reality of the place rather than on presenting Inverness as a kilted, 'shinin' heather', Gaelic paradise which was created specially for visitors and tourists.
