Scotland is magical. 

So magical that the country cast a spell on me the very first time I visited.

Over years of travelling the world, writing articles on places as far flung as India and Peru, I couldn’t get her out of my head.

So I decided not to. Instead, I packed up the car, headed north from London and spent three months travelling around the friendliest, battiest, most beguiling country in the world. One that happened to be right next door.

Now I’m extremely excited to announce that the book I wrote about my trip, Scotland: Beyond the Bagpipes, will publish on March 28th! So you can follow in my footsteps – and find out how you can grab some of Scotland’s magic for yourself.
