THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

With a foreword by Diana Gabaldon.

Two men. One country. And a lot of whisky.

As stars of Outlander, Sam and Graham eat, sleep and breathe the Highlands on this epic road trip around their homeland. They discover that the real thing is even greater than fiction.

Clanlands is the story of their journey. Armed with their trusty campervan and a sturdy friendship, these two Scotsmen are on the adventure of a lifetime to explore the majesty of Scotland. A wild ride by boat, kayak, bicycle and motorbike, they travel from coast to loch and peak to valley and delve into Scotland’s history and culture, from timeless poetry to bloody warfare.

With near-death experiences, many weeks in a confined space together, and a cast of unforgettable characters, Graham and Sam’s friendship matures like a fine Scotch. They reflect on their acting careers in film and theatre, find a new awestruck respect for their native country and, as with any good road trip, they even find themselves.

Hold onto your kilts… this is Scotland as you’ve never seen it before.

Reviews

'A breath of fresh Scottish air in lockdown, it's one to stick in your sporran and consult when compiling your wishlist of places to escape to once restrictions are lifted.'
Scotsman Magazine
The "Outlandish" tour of Scotland with Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish is the armchair adventure we all need right now.
BBC Scotland
This book is full of anecdotes, history and hilarious interactions between the pair as they travel around Scotland in their trusty campervan.
Express
A breezy roadtrip full of banter between the chalk-and-cheese friends.
Sunday Post
For anyone who wants to know more about Scotland's past or hear the inner monologues of two fine gentlemen, this provides a warm and wicked adventure in a magical land.
Magic Radio Book Club
Their odyssey is self-deprecatingly styled as "the story of two men who know nothing". In fact, Heughan and particularly McTavish are keen students of Highland history
Scotland on Sunday
A joyously eclectic mix of historical trivia, travel diary and journey of self-discovery.
Scottish Field
The actors have a lovely dynamic, which is as enjoyable in the book as it promises to be in the upcoming TV series.
The People's Friend
Clanlands is a must for anyone who loves Scotland... a riotous, engaging and dynamic journey.
Dumfries & Galloway Life
'It all comes across as fun-loving and tongue-in-cheek and that's what raises this book above the usual Scottish history/travel books that have become so prominent.'
Cameron McNeish, Scots Magazine
