Although he is the MSP for Na h-Eileanan an Iar and lives in the Isle of Lewis, this Faclan event is about the place Alasdair Allan comes from originally – the Scottish Borders. It follows his east to west coast walk that explores the history, literature and language of the oldest national land border in the world.

“It should be no surprise that a book by a politician about a political boundary offers occasionally opinionated views,” he says, “however, I hope that the account of my journey from Berwick to the Solway Firth will be appreciated by anyone who likes dry humour and wet weather.”
