David R. Ross not only shows us his Scotland but he teaches us it too. You feel as though you are on the back of his motorcycle listening to the stories of his land as you fly with him up and down the smaller roads, the 'desire lines', of Scotland. Ross takes us off the beaten track and away from the main routes chosen for us by modern road builders. He starts our journey in England and criss-crosses the border telling the bloody tales of the towns and villages. His recounting of Scottish history, its myths and its legends is unapologetically and unashamedly pro-Scots.

The late David R Ross was born in Giffnock, Renfrewshire and in his early life moved to East Kilbride which remained his long-term home-town. Fascinated with Wallace and Scottish history, Ross began at the age of 17 to travel to some of the historical places known in Scotland. Ross's previous best-selling books include James the Good: the Black Douglas, On the Trail of William Wallace and On the Trail of Robert the Bruce which have all been exceptionally well received in both the UK and overseas.
