On Sunday we visited Auchinleck House in Ayrshire. It was restored by James Simpson who is a friend of Peter’s.
Auchinleck was the family seat of the diarist and biographer James Boswell (1740-1795). The house had been built – in the Palladian style – by his father as a country retreat.
James Boswell kept a wonderful record of those who visited Auchinleck and called it “Book of Company”
