In The Hidden Ways, Alistair Moffat traverses the lost paths of Scotland. Down Roman roads tramped by armies, warpaths and pilgrim routes, drove roads and rail roads, turnpikes and sea roads . . .
Moffat’s travels along the hidden ways reveal the searing beauty and magic of the secret paths that score the Scottish landscape. By retracing the forgotten paths of Scotland and walking in the footsteps of our ancestors, Moffat opens up a different sort of history through the unremembered lives who have moved through it.
