THE REUNION has a number of Scottish locations: Edinburgh, the East
Neuk of Fife and the Outer Hebrides. My home city of Edinburgh I know
intimately, and the fishing villages of Fife I love. But it was my unexpected
encounter with the Outer Hebrides that sparked off a certainty in me
that I would use them as a location
This is Scarista beach on Harris. It is exquisitely beautiful and unspoilt. I took this photo some years back when I was working on a TV programme that took me to the Outer Hebrides. I have travelled widely during my journalistic career but this was somewhere I had never been before. During that wonderful trip I knew I would have to use Harris and Lewis as a location.
In THE REUNION, one of my main characters, Innes Haldane, has a memorable
meeting on this very beach.

The Callanish Stones on Lewis are quite remarkable. A bit like Stonehenge,
the area is much smaller than you think. It's also very quiet, peaceful
and atmospheric. In
THE REUNION, Danny and Abby meet there.
