Description:

Katharine Stewart was one of Scotland's best-loved writers on rural life in the Highlands and her first book, A Croft In The Hills, has been almost constantly in print since its first publication in 1960. This omnibus gathers A Croft In The Hills; the story of how a couple and their young daughter move from the city to take over a remote hill croft near Loch Ness with some of her later books: A Garden in the Hills which describes a year in the lift of her Highland garden; A School in the Hills, a vivid history of the school at Abriachan which eventually became the Stewarts' family home and The Post in the Hills which recounts the dramatic story of the postal service in the Highlands, from the point of view of Katharine's later role as postmistress of the smallest post office in Scotland, run from the porch of her Abriachan schoolhouse.
