"Craggan Wood, Caman Country" by Mairi Hedderwick

Craggan Wood is in the parish of Daviot and Dunlichity. The area is known for its ash trees and ash is traditionally the wood used to make camans (shinty sticks).

This work is from a collection of drawings and sketches by the popular writer and illustrator, Mairi Hedderwick. They all have some connection to the village of Newtonmore and many of them also represent the game of shinty. Mairi Hedderwick is best known as the author and illustrator of the much loved Katie Morag series of children's books.
