There are historical surprises and supernatural mysteries, quirky sights and more than a few unexpected facts along the way.
With full-page colour illustrations throughout, get ready to encounter the first haggis in space, Mary Queen of Scots' secret private chapel and the world's most Scottish sheep, by way of speciality clootie dumplings, natural wonders, a golden telephone box, amazing literary connections and some of the most remarkable hidden corners in all of Scotland. If you thought you knew everything about Heart 200... it's time to think again!
The book is the second collaboration between brother and sister publishing team Tom and Julie Christie, whose previous book together - 2020's "The Heart 200 Book" - was the first published guide to the iconic Scottish touring route. Working in collaboration with the Heart 200 team, and many companies and organisations throughout the area, their new book promises something of interest for everyone who is coming to see the region and its many attractions for themselves.
"Secrets and Mysteries of the Heart 200 Route" is released on Tuesday 30th November 2021, and will be available to buy from all good independent retailers and online booksellers. More information about the book can be found on the Extremis Publishing website at: https://www.extremispublishing.com/
