And as love goes out the window, murder comes in the door.Peta soon slurps up her last meal and Hamish is left with the baffling puzzle: Who shared the fateful outing that left Peta dead with a large rosy red apple in her mouth…

Travel Guide

Hamish Macbeth country

Tommel Castle Hotel

“Tommel Castle was a terribly expensive hotel and she expected the best of service”

The hotel might be close to the village of Lobloch and since this is fictional, as if the Checkmate singles club, you can  see the appeal of people coming up to the beautiful highlands to try and find some love amongst the mountains and the heather! This could be a hotel not unlike Tommel Castle Hotel in the novel – Duncraig for example


Constable Hamish Macbeth lives in the fictitious town of Lochdubh in Sutherland, Scotland

The TV version – Plockton

The series was filmed on location in the village of Plockton, the town of Kyle of Lochalsh and the surrounding area. The booktrail is a mix of the two.
