APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Combine the high-octane fun of the goofy car show Top Gear with Highlands terrain and you’re in for an unforgettable adventure. Outlander co-stars and real-life best friends Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish give us a blow-by-blow of their epic journey across Scotland, as they navigate the country in vehicles including a camper van, kayak, ski lift, tandem bicycle, and 1940s motorcycle—with sidecar! It’s pure candy to listen to the lads’ endless hilarious banter. But their audiobook also gives us fascinating lessons on the complex history of the Highland clans, which emerge seamlessly as the pair discuss each notable Scottish landmark along the way. The besties’ charming chemistry shines through in their narration, especially when they’re coming up with what sound like some extremely tasty cocktail recipes. Clanlands is the perfect stand-in for a getaway with a couple of your favorite mates.
Worth the read!
Very funny book and gives great insight to Scotland and the outlander series. Read wonderfully by the authors.
I love it and it is all my favorite
A Real Life Fun Bro Bonding Adventure
The accent is a plus, though hearing about the filming adventures within Outlander, the crazy super fans, Scottish history both based on what we see on Outlander but also a more in-depth history of the country via the P.O.V. of its own native sons is a definite bonus. I definitely want to do a whiskey tasting without the aid of a driver with Sam’s skills, otherwise I might have tossing up my account. I won’t give away any spoilers but definitely indulge yourself with either by reading the book or listening to the audiobook.
