  20 Oct '20   |  Posted by: Birlinn

Join award-winning writer and historian Alistair Moffat as he travels through the Highlands and Islands of Scotland in the footsteps of the extraordinary Holy Men who first brought the word of God to Scotland fourteen centuries ago.

In this week’s delightful podcast episode, Alistair Moffat discusses his new book In Search of Angels: Travels to the Edge of the World, detailing the lengths he went to in order to capture the ‘spirit of place’ experienced by the Holy Men, whether it was sleeping on the beach, journeying up the steepest road in Britain or even – possibly – coming face to face with an angel.

In Search of Angels: Travels to the Edge of the World is available to buy now here and is also available from your local bookshop.
