Over the Hills and Far Away

Over the Hills and Far Away A Dalbeattie childhood with Douglas Hamilton

'School had its moments, but I was always happiest alone on the moors with the rabbits, the hawks and the heather. I relished the peace and the great expanse of nature around me.'

'Summer evenings had their own special magic, and for me the most beautiful smell in the whole world was the scent of rain falling on a hot dusty road. It is a smell that disappeared with childhood, that lingers in my memory even today.'

Douglas Hamilton was a child of the Depression. He grew up in a world that was about to disappear with the onset on war. Although he was destined to travel the globe and settle on the other side of the world, he would carry with him the rich gift of his Scottish family and community, and his deep, abiding connection with nature.
