From childhood family day trips to Loch Lomond, to her days as TVam's roving correspondent, Lorraine Kelly has covered the length and breadth of Scotland. But certain special places tug at her heartstrings and lure her back time and time again. Travelling to the highlands and islands and all her favourite places in between, this is Lorraine's personal journey around her beautiful and beguiling country. Each and every stop gives rise to fascinating stories and memories along the way, from her adopted home of Dundee to the wild and remote islands of St Kilda. She revisits childhood haunts in Glasgow, indulges in a spot of whisky-tasting on the island of Islay and reveals what led her to once arrive in Edinburgh pushing a pram and wearing a pair of rollerskates. She rediscovers the joys of the natural wilderness in the Highlands, visits a dramatic Viking fire festival in Shetland and recalls the week she and her family spent hunting the Loch Ness monster...Beautifully illustrated with stunning original photographs, Lorraine Kelly's Scotland is a celebration of a gloriously diverse country with a deep and rich heritage, told with all Lorraine's characteristic warmth and humour.
