If you haven't read the books, you will be in for a treat! At least in my opinion! Creagan is supposed to be located north of The Black Isle, I think two of the main characters fly into Inverness. There is a book called The World of Rosamunde Pilcher which says she may have patterned Creagan on the village/town where she lives which is called Dornoch. I think you "need" to buy these books as a birthday treat, or at least borrow them from the library and set aside reading time as a treat. I am finishing September now, the only book that repeats a character: there is someone who was in The Shell Seekers. Great reading!!!

Janet, I haven't read these books, so I could only be guessing.

Relkirk - the only real town I can think of with a similar name is Selkirk, in the Scottish Borders.

Strathcroy - no idea. There are loads of place names in Scotland beginning with "Strath-" (it means river). There is a Croy Bay in Ayrshire.

Creagan - sounds like it's using the Gaelic from which we get "Craig" which is a rock, or rocky place. There are various similar sounding places around Scotland, like Craigendarroch near Ballater and Balmoral, or Kilcreggan (not sure if that Renfrewshire or Argyll).

Maybe someone else will be able to give more information.

I have been fascinated with Scotland since reading Rosamunde Pilcher books but don't know exactly where the fictional sites are. For instance, Relkirk (I THINK it's fictional) and Strathcroy in the novel September, which I am reading now, and Creagan from Winter Solstice. I would LOVE to visit Scotland again one day (I had a brief week there in 1999) and wonder which towns might be the inspirations for the books.

Let's (virtually) get together and have a day out.
Is there somewhere special near you that you would like to take us, let us get to know about?
