Mairi Hedderwick, the creator of Katie Morag, is one of Scotland's best-known and best-loved author/illustrators. Born in Gourock and educated at the Edinburgh College of Art, she moved to the Isle of Coll, in the Hebrides, in 1962. Though her first home there had no electricity or running water, she settled to raise a family and teach art at the local primary school. Her three books for Canongate, An Eye on the Hebrides, Highland Journey and Sea Change, have been reprinted many times.
