If you could recommend just one Scottish event or festival to a visitor, what would it be and why?
I really enjoy reading a scary crime story - especially if it's set in Scotland - so I'd recommend to other readers Bloody Scotland
, Scotland's crime writing festival, which has seen a number of big names from Martina Cole to Ian Rankin, Linwood Barclay to Val McDermid. It's held in Stirling every September and has book readings, discussions, dinners and even an annual writers' football match!
