Life in the Highlands

Dear Tom,

I believe I once read a newspaper interview you did when making 'Monarch of the Glen', which indicated that you were staying at the time in the village of Kingussie. If correct, I would be interested to know your recollections of the place or any interesting experiences while there. Or, if nothing much happened, memories from your stay in the Highlands more generally.

Dear Ty

Yes, we stayed near Kingussie. Not much happened there apart from Monarch of the Glen. I was a long way from home as we were living in the south of France at that time, so I was not in the mood for falling in love with the place. Even so, I was not immune to the beauty of the Highlands. Driving to work and seeing the stags in the early morning mist - breath-taking! The Highlands are always beautiful - even in the rain. And I enjoyed working with Susan Hampshire and all the others on Monarch of the Glen, so I have good memories of that time.

Best wishes
