With vivacity and humour she describes the various characters of the Glentruim community - teachers, doctors, ghillies and poachers - the events and dramas that punctuated their lives, not least the massed gatherings of Macpherson relatives she was called on to orchestrate. The Highland world, both natural and supernatural, is vividly evoked as Sandra recounts her efforts to combine a respect for tradition with the necessity to find ways to make the estate pay in the modern world, from cookery to haute couture and opening the doors of Glentruim to an American film company. The popular TV series Monarch of the Glen is filmed in the spectacular countryside around Glentruim, and the castle which appears in it used to belong to the Macphersons. Readers of A Strange and Wild Place will find Sandra Macpherson's true story every bit as entertaining and moving as its fictional counterpart.
