Cove Park

I spent three weeks at Cove Park in July and August this year, working on a new book. There is nothing more conducive to concentration than silence, no internet, no phone, the slate-coloured streak of Loch Long visible through the windows of your live/work ‘cube’ and some very tranquil cows… I don’t know when I’ll have the opportunity to do a writing retreat of this kind again, and am very grateful to the Sophie Warne Fellowship, to the lovely folks at Cove Park who looked after me so well, and to┬áthe other residents, who were delightful company when I came out of my self-imposed isolation. It was an unforgettable experience.
