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.

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!

Another Brilliant book Full of Shits and Giggles

If you don’t laugh most of the way through this book, you are dead inside.
The wit. The banter. The bromance. With bits of history, recipes, and facts sprinkled in for a full flavor fantastic story.

Spectacularly funny!

I loved their previous book, Clanlands, but I think I laughed even more on this. Very informative on both Scotland and the writers and so, so funny! I love the Almanac format that you can join in to read/listen whatever month you wish. There's a castle, a battle, festivties etc for each month and all of them are so interesting and enjoyable. A very uplifting read for every occasion. 10/10!!!
Slainte for more adventure with Sam and Graham!

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.
