**********************************************

In the Highlands of Scotland there’s a secret glen
Hidden away from the eyes of men
It’s a cosy place called COORIE DOON
That can only be found by the light of the moon
But if you’re very quiet and don’t start to blether
You might find Hamish McHaggis asleep in the heather

Hamish McHaggis lives in a Hoggle with his friends, Angus a cheeky Pine Marten, Rupert a travelling Hedgehog from Kent in England and Jeannie the osprey. Together they travel around in their wonderful vehicle the Whirry Bang. They often go to visit places in Scotland such as Loch Ness to visit their friend Nessie; Glamis Castle where Hamish’s Grandpappy, Rory McHaggis, knows all about the ghosts and Edinburgh to see the castle and watch the Tattoo.

See the books below to find out more about these and all their other adventures, all beautifully illustrated by the talented illustrator Sally J. Collins.
