The award-winning  Katie Morag series of books, featuring a small girl’s adventures on the fictional Scottish Isle of Struay, are on the school curriculum for six and seven-year-olds in Britain, and the television series is on BBC’s CBeebies.

Mairi Hedderwick lived on the Isle of Coll with her young family with no electricity or running water. The Katie Morag books are loosely based on her life there. She has received awards for her outstanding contribution to children’s literature. She may turn up today with Katie Morag’s teddy which travels everywhere with her.
