A-Bogling They Did Go, Heigh Ho

A week has passed, and the time has come to award three intrepid Bogle hunters for their exploits. We were not, I repeat not, influenced in any way whatsoever by the cuteness of certain photos submitted… In no particular order, metaphorical gold medals go to:

Seth Crook

for his shadow of a Bogle seen on a beach on the Isle of Mull.


Jeni Macleod

for a Bogle hole discovered under a Wishing Stone with the help of her dog, Kelpie.

“I’m darn sure I saw wee jaggy teeth flash at me from the shadows. We’re going to keep bogling til he comes out. I have tea & scones on the stove day and night, in hope. Would just love to meet him.”

Rosie Rutherford

on behalf of Billy, Caramel and Ooshi Bear, who found a Bogle under a chaise. (Editorial team’s joint reaction: “Soooo cute!”)


Congratulations to all intrepid Bogle hunters! Copies of Far Off Places are winging their way to you as we speak.
