In this episode I talk with Jim Corbett of Lochbuie.
The Lochbuie estate has been in Jim’s family since 1922, and Jim and his wife are just about to celebrate their 40th year living here on Mull.
We talk about Jim’s family background, how the family came to live in Lochbuie, the Maclaines of Lochbuie and Kenneth Maclaine in particular. We also mention Moy Castle, I Know Where I’m Going, Eye of the Needle and much, much more.
We also talk about George Sassoon, who is a man I really wish I’d met.
I should point out that when the location of the Ark of the Covenant is mentioned, Jim phoned me up afterward to say that meant the Holy Grail rather than the Ark – it’s in Ethiopia, everyone knows that…
The whole What We Do in the Winter project has been sponsored in kind by the Island Bakery, and everyone who takes part in it gets a complimentary box of Lemon Melts.
