About Hugh Fraser

Hugh was born in the village of Dores by Loch Ness.
On his eighth birthday, his father bought him a ‘Mirror dinghy,’ and sailing became a life long passion.
Hugh has worked with Highland gamekeepers, water bailiffs, shepherds and stalkers. He has always enjoyed cooking and experimenting with recipes. He served as an elected member on Nairn District Council and represented them on the river Nairn Fishery board and the Highland river purification Board.
By the nineteen nineties, the lure of ‘sailing away’ overwhelmed him, so he set about, single-handed, to build a ‘live aboard’ forty-foot steel yacht. Nine hard months later ‘Scotia.’ underwent her sea trials in the 1997 Banff to Stravanger yacht race.
Since then they have sailed around the world, going north to Norway, west across the Atlantic and the Pacific and South to New Zealand. They returned to the Mediterranean by way of the South China Sea, and the Suez Canal, in 2010.

Review by: harry james on July 31, 2011 :
Good story and a easy read, the description of the old ship was quite moving. The baddies are bad and the goodies are good. A nice mix of believable characters.

Review by: jock theman on July 30, 2011 :
I did enjoy this story; it is as the cover says; a seafaring adventure that was obviously written by a sailor. The interaction between the characters is very believable. From the boy Eoin,( I think it’s pronounced Ian), to the feiry Cathy and the gorgeous Tina. The book awakened my boyhood dreamed of sailing away and finding treasure. Good story, I highly recommended it.
I have now read all the books he has on Smashwords, they are all completely different but the underlying humour comes through in them all. I liked. Stand and run best.
