Clanlands
Clanlands: Whisky, Warfare, and a Scottish Adventure Like No Other | Sam Heughan, Graham McTavish
With a foreword by Diana Gabaldon. From their faithful camper van to boats, kayaks, bicycles, and motorbikes, join stars of Outlander Sam and Graham on a road trip with a difference, as two Scotsmen explore a land of raw beauty, poetry, feuding, music, history, and warfare. Unlikely friends Sam and Graham begin their journey in the heart of Scotland at Glencoe and travel from there all the way to Inverness and Culloden battlefield, where along the way they experience adventure and a cast of highland characters. In this story of friendship, finding themselves, and whisky, they discover the complexity, rich history and culture of their native country.

Super fun, humorous jaunt by the two main Outlander actors. Haven‘t seen much of the show yet but did read the first book. The Scottish history is very interesting and not dry; I only wished I could see Men In Kilts! What an adventures two friends took. Great read.

Clanlands is a delightful book. I have both the physical copy for the photos and the audio, for the lovely narration by the authors. Highly recommended even if you're not a particular fan of Outlander.

Here are my March #BookSpin and #BookSpinBingo lists. My BookSpin list is ongoing for the year - I'm just trying to read the official BS number from this list each month as it consists of some longer/denser reads. The Bingo list on the left is comprised of books I'm planning to read in March, most my challenge/buddy read “assignments“. I actually am looking forward to all of these books!!!

Plenty of time to post your list if you're interested in⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) spinning this month - I'll draw the numbers and post the bingo board on Wednesday, March 2!!! 7mo

A few years ago I accidentally met Graham McTavish and figured it would be an appropriate photo to use while I recommended this book by him and Sam Heughan (both of Outlander fame).

I'd highly recommend the audiobook, as it's read by the two actors who are constantly taking the piss out on each other as they travel Scotland and talk about its history and culture. And sample its alcohol. A lot. 😂😅

Bookzombie That‘s so cool! 8mo

In 3 words: adventurous, conversational, charming. Outlander fans, this one is for you. I have read the first book and watched only the first episode, so I‘m definitely not a super fan. However, I have seen a few episodes of these two in Men in Kilts which I really enjoyed. The book is almost an extension of that show. If you have a thing for Scotland, Highlanders, and accents get this audiobook! Fair warning, a bit repetitive.

This is a hard one to rate. Some parts were annoying, but other bits had me laughing out loud. So I‘ll give it a 👍. Really only recommend for Outlander fans, ans definitely on audio!

It did want to make me go out and buy a tartan! Some of my ancestors hail from Clan Elliot, in the borderlands.

#nonfiction2021 something written in a different country

That-Bookish-Hiker They have a series on HBOMax where they travel around Scotland called Men in Kilts: A Road Trip with Sam and Graham. If you haven‘t seen it I would highly recommend! It was great and had a lot of funny moments. 12mo
alisiakae @That-Bookish-Hiker And I will be starting it tonight! I wanted to read the book first. 😂 I'm pretty sure it's on Starz though, not HBO. I was pressed to finish the audiobook so I can watch the show before October when all my TV watching switches to Halloween themed and horror! 12mo
GondorGirl I mean, I would listen to Graham McTavish read the phone book... 😅 12mo
alisiakae @GondorGirl both of them have the most beautiful voices 😍. The main thing I didn‘t like is the constant use of referring to Graham as “Lady McTavish” to portray weakness and high maintenance quirks (edited) 12mo

This 🎧 📖 provides some light entertainment and is beautifully narrated, but I was completely turned off and disappointed by a section in Chapter 10, when MacTavish is basically making light of rape. Not a good look, you lavvy-heided wankstain.

Okay, I couldn‘t resist throwing in Scottish insult. ☺️

ChaoticMissAdventures What a disappointment! Hate when I learn an author is so out of touch and gross. 12mo
alisiakae @ChaoticMissAdventures I wonder if this was written by a ghost writer, and not the two actors. But still, there name is on it. It was in one of Graham MacTavish‘s sections. 12mo

I enjoyed this. I have a dream to one day travel to and explore Scotland. Having Scottish heritage, I‘ve always been interested in learning about the clans and Highlanders. I‘m also an Outlander fan, so I enjoyed some of the behind the scenes info included. The banter between Sam and Graham was fun too. The only thing I probably would‘ve liked more is if there was more info on the clans and less on the actor‘s past careers.

In a classic case of it‘s-not-you-it‘s-me, I cannot sustain an interest in reading this book. The banter and behind-the-scenes tidbits are great, but I just find my thoughts drifting during all the parts regarding the history of Scotland and its clans. I‘m not giving up on it but it‘s definitely telling me to wait a while. April #Bookspin

Road Trip! Stars of Outlander- Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) & Graham McTavish (Dougal Mackenzie) - explore Scotland, a land of raw beauty, poetry, feuding, music, history, and warfare.

This is a must read for fans of Outlander. I would recommend the audiobook, read by the authors, which feels as if they are right there telling you Scottish tales, history, and insights into Outlander filming.

Kloves2read Outlander is my favorite show and I am currently reading book 6. I keep checking Nook audio for this book and for whatever reason it‘s not on there as of yet. So annoying. I am eager to listen to the audio version of this book! 😡 2y

I snort-laughed consistently throughout this book. Sam and Graham make a great pairing, with Sam‘s impulsiveness clashing with Graham‘s caution. I also identified strongly with Graham‘s eternal quest for the next snack 😂😂 Thanks @GingerAntics for putting this on my radar and convincing me to read it!

GingerAntics I‘m so glad I could spread the love. I hope you get to see the show “Men in Kilts,” too. It‘s an absolute HOOT!!! 2y
rabbitprincess @GingerAntics It looks hilarious! 2y
GingerAntics Oh my god, it is!!! It‘s great having read the book because you get more excited when you know where the motorcycle and sidecar comes in. They left out the skinny dipping from the book, unless I missed that, but you‘d think I‘d remember that. The camper van is HILARIOUS when you can see it. There are these hanging tassels all over. 2y

Graham: When I arrive on set, or anywhere such as a hotel, I like to know some simple information... what time breakfast is served...
Sam: And lunch and tea and dinner, all organised whilst you‘re still eating breakfast.
Graham: I just like to know when my next meal is.

I find this hard to rate. I definitely think you have to listen to it rather than read it, but even then, some of the banter is just not interesting. I did love the history, and I wish there had been more of that and a little less of the antics, but that could just be a matter of my mood this past week. Definitely give it a go if you are an Outlander fan or want a little light history of Scotland. 5 hours down for #20in4

This would be really really amazing in audio. I am very much looking forward to seeing the Men in Kilts tv show being filmed in this book. It‘s chock full of Scottish history, which really makes me wonder how there are any Scottish people left. They are a bloody minded murderous lot. Some of the banter between these two men bothered me, a lot of chirping and put downs, constantly. Maybe it will be funnier in the show 🤷🏻‍♀️

First book completed for 2021. I really liked this & can‘t wait to see the show when it airs (Men in Kilts). I‘ve always been interested in Scotland but became more interested after reading Outlander. This is a funny road trip with a lot of joking, background about Graham & Sam‘s childhood & acting life, & Scottish history. If you like Outlander, whisky, or Scotland, this is a book for you. Great armchair travel—I hope to go in person.

I loved this book! It was such a joy to read!

A mixture of memoir, history and the antics of two men that behave like older and younger brother, this was the perfect book to end 2020. While this book had me laughing at times, I was also in awe with the respect and honour these two men gave to Scottish history. It was a very romantic yet bloody discussion as they travelled the highlands in the rustiest modes they could find.

I love a good travel memoir, and this one was terrific. I think had it just been one of the authors doing the writing/talking, it wouldn't have been nearly so good, but these two have a terrific rapport. I am an Outlander fan, but don't you need to be in order to enjoy this book. They reference the show a bit, but it's largely a book of travel, history, friendship, and drinking whiskey (and lattes for Graham).
