Synopsis

David R. Ross not only shows us his Scotland but he teaches us it too. You feel as though you are on the back of his motorcycle listening to the stories of his land as you fly with him up and down the smaller roads, the 'desire lines', of Scotland. Ross takes us off the beaten track and away from the main routes chosen for us by modern road builders. He starts our journey in England and criss-crosses the border telling the bloody tales of the towns and villages. His recounting of Scottish history, its myths and its legends is unapologetically and unashamedly pro-Scots.

David R. Ross is a prolific author and motorcycle historian. His spare time is spent travelling around historic sites, battlefields and castles exploring the spots where the great, and not-so-great, Scots of history stood. Passionate about Scottish history he works to promote it through magazine contributions and regularly appears on the History and Discovery channels, in the UK and North America. He is particularly interested in Scotland's great leaders and is the convenor of the Society of William Wallace. His Walk for Wallace in 2005 attracted worldwide media attention.
