Hi everyone! As am marooned in Scotland for the foreseeable, I thought I would see if anyone knows the real-life locations for the EJO Scottish books? Would be good inspiration. Thanks! :)

Thank you! I somehow had Loch Long in my mind but started second guessing myself :)

May I hijack this thread to ask a similar question : what is the location of 'The Two Form Captains'?

More or less Kandersteg, with elements of a few other places. The International Scout Centre is about right for where the schools are. The Blue Lake is a mixture of Blausee and Oeschinensee (EJO often does this sort of composite.)

Somewhere there is a similar thread for EJO and France and Switzerland which abbeybufo kindly answered for me a few years ago if you want the complete list. Oeschinensee was well worth the visit!

Thanks. I thought it probably was. The Blue Lake is very distinctive and much of the rest also seemed to fit very well.
