Scotland Island dreaming

My association with island-life continues even whilst living in Sydney, for my brother and his wife live on Scotland Island nestled in Pittwater. This well-kept, secret city-escape is a haven, just a few minutes by boat from Church Point

My brother tells me that he feels permanently on holiday on Scotland Island and therefore, well worth the 40-minute daily commute 

The Scotland Island Dog Race to Church Point every Christmas Eve is an essential part of island life for every local mutt (and owner)  

Tranquil waters, tranquil dreams - that's how I spend my days on Scotland Island

Susan Duncan writes evocatively about the Off-Shore Communities in her books on life on Pittwater. She captures her life, the people, places and events with passion and honesty and her recipes are THE best!
