Episode notes

This episode is a conversation with Harry Hickford of Tobermory. Harry comes originally from the Scottish borders where he worked on the land, particularly as a horsieman. He came to Mull to run Erray Farm for Colonel Anderson. We talk about his time growing up in the borders, a little about borders identity, then his move to Mull, who the characters were when he first came here, how he found life on the island, the changes in agricultural practice that he’s seen over the course of his life and much more besides. We also hear a ghost story... This is a conversation that I’ve wanted to have for a very long time, so it was just brilliant to get to spend time with Harry. What We Do in the Winter is sponsored by Island Bakery, and, in particular, their delicious Lemon Melts.
