Libby is the author of the award-winning Blow Out the Moon and other books.  She spends half the year in her shepherd's hut on a Scottish island. See the blog for the story of how she found the land and (with the help of many islanders) got the hut to it.

The hut June 2016.

The bags are shopping from the mainland. Libby wasn't the only islander on the boat with lots of shopping!

And in November 2014, as winter began (Libby is wearing a ski bib under her jumper) and the weather got wild: it was raining hard when this was taken. But the sun was out, too -- someone has described the island weather as "manic depressive." Sometimes it's both at the same time.
