 Lost in the Hills 
                     at Balmoral

Hector, Hamish and Morag are taking part in the world famous Braemar Gathering and Highland Games. With a few hours to spare they head off to explore the forest, with no thought of how to get back. Join the three friends as they work together to find a way home and meet a very special lady in need of a helping hand during their adventure.


There are 32 pages of colourful Illustrations featuring animals from the forest and Hector's holiday scrapbook. The Queen's love of Balmoral in Scotland and Highland Cattle inspired the story which was written a few years before her sad passing in 2022.
