An excerpt from 'Tending Our Wild Isles'
Countryfile Magazine, The Green Issue, March 2020
'It's 7am and my bed crunches as I roll over. I've woken up in an ancient woodland on a floor carpeted with dried oak leaves. Their autumn colours are kaleidoscopic. The morning sunlight filters through knobbly branches, past long tufts of beard lichens and warms my eyelids. The wrens are peeping and, in the distance, I can hear the cows calling for breakfast.
In a couple of days time I'll be waking up in the dramatic amphitheatre of an old slate quarry. It's a colder, more sullen colour palette and each rock ledge is outlined by white frost. Every now and again there's a distant tinkling sound as a chip of loose slate lets go and falls free. It feels strange, dark and otherworldly.
These very different places are the islands of Ulva and of Luing, two destinations on my challenge to visit all 82 of Great Britain's Largest islands.'
She will get back to you as soon as possible.
