More About the Author

Hi,
I had lived all my life in the same small village in South Yorkshire. I had a good career as a primary school teacher and enjoyed every minute until I got ill and had to retire. Then life became quite dull and uninteresting. Once I was better I was ready for a new challenge. However, I had no idea just how many challenges were coming my way!

In 2002, my partner, Richard, and I bought a small piece of Scotland called Low Arvie. It was nominally a farm. but in reality just a wet and boggy piece of marshland. Already in our fifties we set about creating our new life on this plot and now we have built a small but successful business and a satisfying life for ourselves.

How did we do it? By a lot of hard work and a lot of help from the community we moved amongst.

So just how did twenty-four Black Galloway cows become 'The Ladies of Low Arvie'?

How did we change the wet and boggy land into some kind of nourishing food for them?

How did we cope with second hand machinery that didn't work properly?

Why did we hire the only bull in Scotland that didn't know what to do when faced with our beautiful 'Ladies'?

How did I fulfil my promise to my 90 year old mother that I would always look after her?

You can read it all in my book 'The Ladies of Low Arvie' and see just how a dull and boring life can change.

I loved both these two books. They are so inspiring to "do your thing" before it is too late. I read both back to back and couldn't put them down. Be warned - set aside a weekend before you start. More please Linda.

Format: Paperback
A tale of real life on a real farm, written in a charming manner with lots of humour. Lovely to catch up on events of the past few years and to read how dreams can be fulfilled - despite many setbacks and some heartache. Couldn't put the book down until I'd finished!

just read the latest book about life at low arvie, its fantastic could not put it down until last word was read, its again shows how life can be good and how life can be cruel. linda watson has once again come up trumps, if there is a next chapter on life at low arvie, i hope its as good as the other two
