Cranachan is a traditional Scottish dessert. It’s made from a mixture of whipped cream, whisky, honey and fresh raspberries, with toasted oatmeal soaked overnight in a wee splash of whisky.

At Cranachan Publishing we focus on sourcing the finest, freshest writing so that we can produce books that our readers will want to devour in one sitting.


Anne Glennie


Making sure that Cranachan serves up mouth-watering books, Anne Glennie, as the founder and director, heads up the team. With a degree in English Language and Literature, she has always been passionate about reading, learning and books.

Anne also runs her own education consultancy, The Learning Zoo which offers leading-edge training in all aspects of children’s literacy for teachers. She is a founding committee member of IFERI, a member of the RRF, and is known for her thought-provoking education comment pieces.

A writer herself, she focuses on creative non-fiction– but also writes fiction freelance for reading schemes used in schools. She is the author of nine children’s reading books which will be published later this year by a leading educational publisher.
