Myra Duffy

Myra is best known for her series of crime novels set on the Isle of Bute.

Of her choice of Bute as the location of her novels, Myra says “The Isle of Bute provides inspiration because it offers a ‘contained’ setting for the action”.

Myra divides her time between Glasgow and the Isle of Bute and has family connections to the island stretching back several generations.

The House at Ettrick Bay, Last Ferry to Bute, Last Dance at Rothesay Pavilion, Endgame at Port Bannatyne, Grave Matters at St. Blane’s, Death at the Kyles of Bute, Bad Blood at Rothesay Castle, Deadly Secrets at the Standing Stones, Susie’s Story and Decision Day at Kilmachal are all set on Bute while Dark Deeds at Bute Noir is based on our very own festival.

Recently The House at Ettrick Bay was developed as a play for radio, produced by the Bute Theatre Company and broadcast on Bute Island radio.
