My Heart's In The Lowlands


Formats & editions


Ten Days in Bonny Scotland

“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

Best-selling novelist Liz Curtis Higgs invites you to take an entertaining journey through the South West of Scotland, known as Dumfries and Galloway. Without crossing the pond, changing time zones, or driving on the left side of the road, you’ll explore quaint villages and crumbling castles, old bookshops and charming tearooms in the delightful company of a guide whose love for this quiet nook of Scotland illuminates every page.

The verdant hills and glens of the Lowlands are awash in history, rich with culture, and peopled with engaging characters. The setting for Higgs’s acclaimed series of historical novels, Dumfries and Galloway also serves as her home away from home. Her decade-long love affair with this unique area of the world, combined with her award-winning storytelling skills, makes her the ideal armchair travel companion.

Warm, personal, and deeply evocative, My Heart’s in the Lowlands transports you to an unforgettable corner of Scotland that will lay claim to your heart forever.

Liz Curtis Higgs is the best-selling author of 25 books, including her Scottish historical novels Thorn in My Heart, Fair Is the Rose, Whence Came a Prince, and Grace in Thine Eyes. She is currently writing her fifth historical novel, Here Burns My Candle.
