Description - The Moon's Our Nearest Neighbour by Ghillie Basan
Ghillie Basan and her husband decided to leave their home in Edinburgh and set up in a remote hillside cottage at the foot of the Cairngorms. Aiming to restore the cottage and build photographic studios out of the barns, the pair are constantly thwarted by the weather - bold, dramatic and sometimes treacherous. But the beauty of the landscape almost compensates for the bleakness of such an existence, and the story is peppered with tales of whisky-breathed farmers, boiler engineers with a penchant for dressing in cowboy suits, the birth and death of lambs, the night skies and the northern lights, mothers-in-law arriving in high heels, pink mini-dresses and getting stuck in snow drifts and finally, two babies.
