9780751553185: Native Stranger: A Journey in Familiar and Foreign Scotland

After ten years of wanderlust which took him to nearly seventy countries around the world, Alastair Scott decided it was time to make 'home' his destination. Resolving to explore Scotland and the Scottish people in as much depth and breadth as possible, the author drew up an itinerary which would take him from the outermost isle to the innermost city, sampling the experiences of modern Scotland in all their diversity. Encompassing issues of the land, eccentrics in castles, the state of the Gaidheal, homelessness in Edinburgh, and all the idiosyncrasies of history, development and decline in between, Scott's journey covered four thousand miles of island, mountain and lowland. The variety of place and circumstance was exceeded only by that of the characters encountered en route. The result is a detailed and engrossing portrait of contemporary Scotland, and of one man's rediscovery of his native land.

About the Author:

Alastair Scott was born in Edinburgh in 1954. He now lives with his wife, Sheena, on Skye (with occasional bouts of vagrancy), working as a photographer, writer and broadcaster.

Review:

Delightful and amusing...not your typical tourist guide and includes such diverse activities as bungee-jumping in Orkney and the not-to-be-missed crematorium tour in Aberdeen! SCOTLAND on Sunday A witty, amusing writer - I wanted more DAILY TELEGRAPH
