IMG_3460Robin A Crawford is a writer with particular interest in the culture and natural heritage of Scotland. Born in Glasgow he has been a bookseller for twenty five years. Trained as a sculptor, he has lectured at Edinburgh University and given lunchtime talks at the National Galleries of Scotland. When not squelching through bogs or drinking over-brewed tea in island croft kitchens he likes to read, garden and post quirkily on his blog http://www.robinacrawford.com
He lives near Auchtermuchty with his wife Angie, who grew up on the island of Lewis, and also works in the book trade. He has two sons, Alexander and Joe. His cottage has gas central heating; gas hob, electric oven; a wood burning stove; and in his living room fire burns a mixture of coal and peat.

Currently writing a book on peat and the peat culture of Scotland.
