About the Book

From the lonely pitches of Eriskay to the great stadiums of our cities, Snapshot captures the gritty, alluring essence of Scotland’s national game.

Alan McCredie’s photographs combine with Daniel Gray’s words to accompany the reader on a charismatic tour of Scottish football from Selkirk to Stornoway. Here is a rarely seen version of the country and its football culture, rich in detail, charm and eccentricity. It is a prolonged love letter to floodlights in Ayr, ghost stadiums in Glasgow, pitch-invading oystercatchers in Grantown and all the rest.

From Border to island, Premiership to Highland, here are the people and places that make Scottish football – old pal fans in the rain, park players kicking and dreaming, fathers and daughters trudging dejectedly from the match, proud club shop proprietors, scraggy but loveable grounds with one grandstand and bustling stadiums of noble vintage.

Snapshot is a celebration of football and a portal into a different kind of Scotland.
