Outlander's Scotland - our May book of the month
Our book of the month for May is hotly anticipated to say the least - we're predicting this is going to be a phenomenally popular book!
Outlander has been one of the biggest TV crazes to hit screens in recent years. Since its first airing in 2014, millions of viewers have tuned in to see Claire Randal and Jamie Fraser's time travelling adventures. Scotland's awe-inspiring landscape has taken centre stage in this series, and now Pitkin have compiled this superb guide to the locations that the smash-hit series was filmed.
From the ancient cobbled streets, gabled palace and herb garden of Culross in Fife, which became the fictional Cranesmuir, to the iconic 1960s Pathfoot Building at the University of Stirling, which Claire's daughter visits on her first trip to Scotland, visitors too can time travel through centuries.
In Scotland, different eras coexist and collide - just as they do in Outlander.
The book focuses on easy day trips to take from the characterful cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow - both of which are packed with Outlander filming locations - and offer information on the most rewarding sites, when to visit them and how to get there.
As with all Pitkin guides, it's illustrated throughout with quality photographs of the locations themselves and with imagery from the TV series.
Add a striking cover to boot, and this is bound to be a big hit all across the country.
Outlander's Scotland is published in May 2018 and we'll be selling it on Scottish Bookstore with 10% discount. Keep a watchful eye on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to find out when it's available!
