My Irreplaceable Other: A Valentine’s Day Poem by Alexander McCall Smith

Date Published: 12th February 2021

Alexander awoke recently with this poem almost fully formed in his mind, as if it came to him in his sleep. He shares it with you today as people across the world celebrate love. The landscape pictured is Baddinsgill Reservoir in the Pentland Hills, a range of hills to the south of Edinburgh which are often mentioned in Alexander’s books.
