Creative Writing student blogs about Scotland

She made it: Laurie Mackie stands triumphant at the top of Arthur's Seat, in Edinburgh.  

After more than three decades working in accounting and taxation, Laurie Mackie took the plunge and came back to school full-time to pursue her love of words. Now earning her Associate of Arts degree in Creative Writing at Douglas, Laurie took part in the 2012 Scotland Field School as part of her studies. Read her blog, "Halò, fàilte gu Alba!" - or "Welcome to Scotland!" for those of you do not speak Scottish Gaelic - to discover what life was like for her on the other side of the pond.
