Alyson Bailes


Alyson Bailes became ambassador to Finland in 2000, when it was still relatively uncommon for a woman to get a top post in Europe

Alyson JK Bailes CMG

It is with deep sadness that we report the death in Scotland on 29th April 2016 of Dorothy Dunnett Society member Alyson JK Bailes CMG, author of Iceland: The Dorothy Dunnett Guide. She was a popular and extraordinarily talented woman and will be sorely missed by all her Dorothy Dunnett Society friends.  Several British newspapers have published obituaries and you can read The Guardian’s here.  Readers of The Lymond Chronicles will be moved to know that Alyson requested her ashes be scattered at St Mary’s Loch.
