Clanlands

Review by: Claire Mead
Genre: Non-fiction
Hilarious book. If you haven't seen the TV show and if they are as entertaining as in the book, then you need to see that as well.

There was a bit of repetitiveness throughout the book with both lads telling their memories of the events (and repeating the history of story that came with it) and I got a bit over the Sam versus Graham plot, but understood that was the premise of the show ...

All in all an entertaining and educational read, I have been to most of the locations they went to when I was on my Outlander themed OE before the TV show made it as popular as it is now. The history they encounter is looked at from many angles and Graham's keen interest keeps it accessible to readers. They were lucky to meet clan chiefs, custodians and real life castle owners which gives this book a bit more than the average tourist can access.
