Ian Kirkwood is a Kirkmichael-based illustrator and graphic designer, some of whose work is to be found on information boards along the Cateran Trail. Ian derives much of his inspiration from the Perthshire Highlands, as is the case with one of his publications ‘Rob and Bo Ban’, the story of how a young cattle herder outwits the Caterans with the help of the Cam Ruadh. Published by Capercaillie Books, the story is based on a 19th century tale, and is set in Strathardle and Glenshee. When not working on other projects, Ian can often be found looking after his bee-hives, the occupants of which are busy gathering honey from the surrounding hills and hedgerows.
