External Reviews

"He’s an entertaining companion and I defy anyone reading this not to want to pull on their walking boots and get out into the countryside and into the hills as quickly as possible. Moffat is on a mission to open up the ‘hidden roads’ of Scotland, to make them accessible to all, to educate and to entertain us on the subject of our multi-layered history. If this book is just a start, I can’t wait for what is to come. My first 5 star read of 2019."

"The Hidden Ways is a journey through Scotland's historically significant but largely forgotten roads and paths. Alistair provides in-depth knowledge of the roads histories and the areas they pass through. It is written in such a way that you feel like you are there with Moffat."
