Publishers Description
"Let's "go, " shall we? Just the two of us?"

""I consider Galloway the country's best kept secret: a place where time holds its breath, where ancient ruins dot the countryside in moss-covered splendor, where the natives are friendly and tourists are few, only because they don't know what they're missing.
"So, ten days in bonny Scotland. You'll join me, aye?"
"-from "My Heart's in the Lowlands"

Reviews - What do customers think about My Heart's in the Lowlands: Ten Days in BonnyScotland?

great tour  Feb 23, 2007
Popular author Liz Curtis Higgs has written four highly regarded Scottish historical novels (see THORN IN MY HEART, FAIR IS THE ROSE, WHENCE CAME A PRINCE, and GRACE IN THINE EYES). To provide authenticity to these tales, Ms. Higgs would travel to the Lowlands especially Galloway, which she insists is "the country's best kept secret". Over time her trips to Scotland turned into an annual getaway to include leading a Heart for Scotland book tour. Thus the armchair audience will see the Lowlands from a passionate person who cherishes the area.

The book takes readers on quite a tour including the expected castles and villages. However, Ms. Higgs brings more than old ruins as she tells a story that brings to life the world of Robert Burns, the age of smugglers in the coves, and Benny Gillies "modern day" bookstore, etc. Readers who enjoy Scottish historical romances will want to visit the pubs and tearooms, the churches and castles, the tiny villages and the bigger cities as tour guide Liz Curtis Higgs shows why her heart is in the Lowlands.

Scotland has captured the heart of Liz Curtis Higgs and now she invites you to come along...just travel some highways and many byways of the Scottish Lowlands with her. For ten days she will escort you through the intriguing nooks and crannies of a country blessed with pleasant sites, friendly people and good food. (There's more to eat than haggis!) As you journey along with Liz at the wheel, she will regale you with tales of the people and places you visit, with the mesmerizing skills of the Ancient Mariner. Liz's verbal pictures of the pleasant life in the Lowlands are enhanced by well executed pencil drawings.

Fans of Liz's acclaimed historical novels set in Dumfries and Galloway will recognize scenes from each one of the books. If you yearn to explore the quaint villages and crumbling castles, old bookshops and charming tearooms, but can't fit a trip to Scotland into your schedule--or your purse, take a virtual tour with Liz from your armchair. You'll find her writing, warm, personable and deeply evocative, just like South West Scotland.
