Publisher's Summary

The follow-up to the quarter of a million-copy-selling Sunday Times and New York Times number one best-selling Clanlands. Sam and Graham turn tour guides once again to bring listeners more epic tales from Scotland.

A seasonal meander through the wilds of Scotland. 

'If Clanlands was a gentle road trip through Scotland, this Almanac is a top down, pedal to the metal up and down odyssey through the many byways of a Scottish year. An invitation to anyone who picks up the book to join us on a crazy camper van exploration over 12 glorious, whisky fuelled 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. It is a camper van cornucopia of all things Alba.'

From First Footing to Samhain, Fringe Festival follies to whisky lore, Sam and Graham guide listeners through a year of Scottish legends, traditions, historical and contemporary events, sharing personal stories and tips as only these two chalk-and-cheese friends can.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

very entertaining listen. not so deep that a casual reader would get overloaded but enough information to feel like any reader is able to learn something from the information presented. as always these two present the material in a fun and lighthearted manner which is easy to digest.

Easy listen

I listened to this follow up book whilst walking the Cateran Trail. I love the little giggly moments Sam & Graham have during reading. Also enjoyed the humour in general. It’s a lovely easy listen. I learnt a few things along the way too.
I, like Sam also recommend Mudlarking - it’s a gentle informative listen.

Brilliant and very entertaining listen

Wow! A fantastic insight into all things Scottish. If you love Scotland, the history and traditions surrounding this beautiful country this book is a must that I highly recommend.
Packed with facts and delivered brilliantly by Sam and Graham I was sad when it finally finished. Filled with humour and wit it has certainly been a while since I enjoyed a book so much. Thank you Sam and Graham for letting me share your journey.

Informative, educational, entertaining, funny.

I have thoroughly enjoyed learning about Scotland, its history, clans, traditions, dances, celebrations, geography, festivals and so on. Sam and Graham do an excellent job guiding the listener through a ‘Scottish’ year with admirable pride in their heritage, undeniable love for this beautiful, rugged country and with such pleasant voices that it is a delight to listen to their book. Brilliant in every respect.

Hilarious

It is as funny as Clanlands & I learned a lot along the way. Well, I think I did. Maybe more about Graham’s warped sense of humour (which I love) and his interpretation of history. I hope he really gets his own Alcohol brand as the result of this book. I would love to think what most Scots think of their humour and take on all things Scottish.
Thoroughly enjoyed it!
