There is, of course, plenty to do and see in Edinburgh in August. But amidst the many joys of festival Edinburgh, may I suggest that readers might care to have a gander at my sister's latest exhibition of paintings? Of course I may. And will. She's exhibiting at the Flaubert Gallery in Stockbridge until August 19th. Most of the new work, I think, is from Sutherland and highland Perthshire. I especially like the painting here which, though it's Perthshire, actually makes me think of the Canadian north-country that features prominently and memorably in John Buchan's Sick Heart River. Anyway, check it out.
