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.

A rambling...

Really not great. A real rambling of stories and cringeworthy discussion.

I hoped for better.

Month by month

Decided to listen to this month by month, through out the year. Just listened to November and flipping heck does Sam Heughan ever stop talking about himself and promoting all his projects - feel like he’s always flogging some product or movie he’s done. The last book was the same. Annoying.

A delight to listen to

Made January a lot more tolerable. The camaraderie between the two authors is delightful with a lot of laugh-out-loud moments.

Brilliant entertaining history

Thoroughly enjoyed this journey through the Scottish year. Sam and Graham are brilliant storytellers and I learnt a lot too of the history of Scotland.
