Book Week Scotland: Tiny Tales on the Malt Whisky Trail with Alexander McCall Smith


Join the prolific Alexander McCall Smith as he visits The Malt Whisky Trail in beautiful Speyside, bringing literature and laughter to the heart of Malt Whisky Country.

Known and loved across the world for his No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency and 44 Scotland Street series, master story-teller Alexander McCall Smith will appear at The Glenlivet Distillery, one of the nine whisky sites that form The Malt Whisky Trail. The distillery sits in a wild and remote glen, its history laced with drama and intrigue, so where better to join Alexander for a heartwarming hour of infectious laughter and much-needed cheer.

From this warm autumnal whisky setting, Alexander invites you to join him as he roams the world – sharing first his love for Scotland with its rich heritage of storytelling, then the latest from Botswana, home to Precious Ramotswe. He will read from his Tiny Tales collection and offer a very special treat in the form of a poem from his new collection, In a Time of Distance, which perfectly captures the areas of travel and home amidst a time of isolation.

This event will be broadcast on The Malt Whisky Trail’s Instagram Live on Tuesday 17 November at 1pm.

Books will be sold by The Bookmark in Grantown-on-Spey: visit or call the shop on 01479 873 433 to place your order.
