Isla Robertson

Writer. Screenwriter. Playwright.

Stories have always been a huge part of my life. Growing up in a magical part of the West Highlands of Scotland, the wild landscape of Morvern's coast, lochs and hills have always been a huge source of inspiration in my writing and they continue to be to this day. Who knows what weird and wonderful creatures lurk just out of sight in that crack in the rock face or behind that tumbling waterfall...

Since completing a History degree at the University of Edinburgh I have also been very influenced by some of the incredible objects, people, languages and ancient civilisations that I was able to study. Stories are a window into another world and creating those worlds is one of the greatest joys I can imagine.
