National Geographic : 1946 May
@ National Geographic Society Kodachrome byB.Anthony Stewart Beloved by Robert Louis Stevenson, This Thatched Community Plays a Romantic Part in"St. Ives" At Swanston, Stevenson's parents leased a summer cottage for the sake of their delicate son. From it he roamed themoors and glens ofPentland Hills. InSamoa he pined for these "Hills of Home," writing: "The tropics vanish and meseems that I . . . dreaming, gaze again." Modern Edinburgh encroaches on sequestered Swanston.
