From Skara Brae and the Roman invasion to the independence referendum and beyond, the former Edinburgh Makar (Poet Laureate) explores what Scotland means to itself and to the outside world. With his customary wit and insight, he takes a good hard look at some of its magicians – from James Hutton to Professor Peter Higgs, from Robert Burns to Dame Elizabeth Blackadder and even Tony Blair. Underlying all these poems is a deep love for Scotland’s uniqueness, and its magic!
