Passion Gutted


In 1938, author Virginia Wolff traveled north for the first time, though she had previously published Skye-based “To the Lighthouse”.  As related in Robert Crawford’s “Scotland’s Books”, reaching Dryburgh Abbey, she ‘gutted my passion for Scott on his tomb – like chocolate blanc-mange’.

Virginal Wolff was born on January 25, 1882.
