With a foreword by Diana Gabaldon.

Two men. One country. And a lot of whisky.

As stars of Outlander, Sam and Graham eat, sleep and breathe the Highlands on this epic road trip around their homeland. They discover that the real thing is even greater than fiction.

Clanlands is the story of their journey. Armed with their trusty campervan and a sturdy friendship, these two Scotsmen are on the adventure of a lifetime to explore the majesty of Scotland. A wild ride by boat, kayak, bicycle and motorbike, they travel from coast to loch and peak to valley and delve into Scotland's history and culture, from timeless poetry to bloody warfare.

With near-death experiences, many weeks in a confined space together, and a cast of unforgettable characters, Graham and Sam's friendship matures like a fine Scotch. They reflect on their acting careers in film and theatre, find a new awestruck respect for their native country and, as with any good road trip, they even find themselves.

Hold onto your kilts... this is Scotland as you've never seen it before.


  • History, Scotland, and Mild to Moderate Insanity

    Even though I’m not an Outlander fan, this book was hilarious. I couldn’t stop laughing at the banter between Sam and Graham, and the hijinx they managed to get up to. Next time I’m having a bad day, I’m just going to read a chapter of this and things will certainly be brighter. If you’re into history, Scotland, or mild to moderate insanity, this book is for you!!!
  • Surprisingly funny and sweet

    I had no idea Graham McTavish could be so funny and laugh so much at himself. I expected the hijinks from Sam, but, perhaps not the tenderness. This is a lovely recounting of two men who actually love one another on a journey of unscripted comedic proportions. I highly recommend it!
