Highland Sketchbook Summary


Highland Sketchbook: Year in Glen Esk by Derek Robertson

Using an evocative mixture of diary entries, drawings and paintings, this book takes the reader on a year-long journey through Glen Esk in the foothills of the eastern Grampian mountains. Month by month, wildlife artist Derek Robertson charts his travels up from the rolling terrain and picturesque valleys at the glen mouth to the ice-gouged corries and bleak summits at its head. En route, the author portrays the history of the region as the seasons progress - his chance encounters with the normally elusive badgers, wildcats and otters of the glen, his careful studies of its indigenous and migratory birds, and his sketches of its wide variety of plants, insects and rocks.
