Coming on 23rd May 2021 – pre-order now!  

Orkney and North-East Scotland: the Dorothy Dunnett Guide‘They’re rebuilding the church of the old Pictish monastery. And now they have the feel of it, they’ve decided to knock down part of Earl Sigurd’s hall and build a better one. With heating-flues, and a water-channel, and bath-house outside. Some of the houses are being rebuilt as well, and they are to repair the slipway.’ (Groa explains the renovations at Birsay; KH, Pt 3, Ch 12)

Currently in the final stages of editing and proofing and due for publication in the northern spring is Orkney and North-East Scotland: The Dorothy Dunnett Guide – approximately 80 pages of quotes, texts and illustrations that explore locations in Thorfinn’s Orkney, his Caithness earldoms and his Moray mormaerdom.
