    Default Thurso Caithness Writers

    Many years ago there was a Caithness Writers group that met in the Pentland Hotel. the guy who ran it was John Somebody. Does any one know anything about them, or can put me in touch with any of the members?

    Sounds as if it could be John Mcleod.

    I didn't know there was a group in Thurso but might be interested in joining, if there is.

    I don't think so. As far as I know he lives in the
    Springpark area.

    Please do let us know. The guy who ran the group about ten years ago worked at Thurso College, was John ? I remember going up one night when a Swedish Writer was giving a talk. Said she used to be a mistress of King Farook. She was here as part of the Northland's Festival. There was quite a crowd there. someone must remember.
