In this episode I talk with Olive Brown of Tobermory.
Originally from Dundee, Olive met her late husband, Alasdair, whilst a student at St Andrews, and, after some time down south came to Tobermory to run Alasdair’s family’s shop – the iconic Brown’s on the main street.
We talk about her life growing up in Dundee, her student years in St Andrews, the shop, Mull Museum and the Rural.
