Talk and Demo

Islay Book Festival: Mollie Hughes

Blue Scotland: Morning dip and book chat with Mollie Hughes
White Hart Beach & Little Charlottes Café, Port Ellen

Mollie Hughes’ stunningly illustrated book Blue Scotland inevitably makes you want to jump in the sea, so we thought we’d help by offering a morning dip with the author in one of the island’s inviting bays. The invigorating experience will be followed by a chat with Mollie about her book over a cuppa, and a book signing of course. Meet at the White Hart Beach across from Little Charlotte’s Café, and don’t forget to bring a warm jumper for after the short swim. A session for the adventurous at heart!

Mollie Hughes is a world record-breaking sports adventurer, mountaineer, polar explorer and international motivational speaker. In 2017 Mollie broke the world record for becoming the youngest woman to climb both sides of Mount Everest and in 2020 became the youngest woman to ski solo to the South Pole. In December 2020 she was the first woman to become president of Scouts Scotland.
