Last year, Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish topped the New York Times bestseller list with their first book, Clanlands: Whisky, Warfare, and a Scottish Adventure Like No Other, which explored Scotland’s history, food, and culture (and as the title suggests, its clans). Now, the Outlander actors have put pen to paper once again on a new book: The Clanlands Almanac: Seasonal Stories from Scotland.
“If Clanlands was a gentle road trip with our readers through Scotland, this Almanac is a top down, pedal to the metal, up-and-down odyssey through the many byways of a Scottish year,” explained Heughan and McTavish in an email announcement about their new project. “[It’s an] invitation to anyone who picks up the book to join us on a crazy campervan exploration over 12 glorious, whisky-fueled months. Mountains, battles, famous (and infamous) Scots, the alarming competitiveness of Men in Kilts, clans, feuds, flora, fauna, with a healthy sprinkling of embarrassing personal reminiscences thrown in. Much is explored, all is shared, lawsuits are inevitable. It is a campervan cornucopia of all things Alba.”
The book’s publisher, Hachette further described what to expect in a statement of their own. “As entertaining as it is practical, The Clanlands Almanac is a light-hearted education in Scottish history and culture, told through the eyes of two passionate Scotsmen. The perfect escapist guide, The Clanlands Almanac is intended as a starting point for your own Scottish discoveries,” they wrote.
The Clanlands Almanac is set to debut on November 9, making it a perfect Christmas gift for the travel lover or Outlander fan in your life, and Heughan just recently revealed the cover art on social media:
