A popular historic novel written in the north-east is to feature in a storybook trail of Scotland.
Robert Louis Stevenson’s well-loved book Treasure Island, which was penned in Braemar, puts the town on the trail, which was created by VisitScotland.
Some of the book’s characters are thought to have been based on people that Stevenson met in the north-east village.
Included among the other sights is Moray’s The Book of the Howlat, by James Robertson and Kate Leiper, which is a tale of a little owl who wants to be beautiful, and was originally written in the 1440s by Richard Holland, who was chaplain to the Earl of Moray.
As well as Moray, other notable inclusions include The Beano, The Dandy and Oor Wullie producers DC Thomson, in Dundee – which also owns the Evening Express – with statues of characters around the city.
