Unrelenting humor, with some fascinating Scottish history thrown in!

I don’t think I have EVER laughed so hard and so long as I did reading this book. I’m now on my second time through and am finding it just as funny as the first. However, for me, the battle of Culloden was so vividly brought to
life by these two, that tears ran down my cheeks unrestrained. History (and laughter) will do just that when applied in the right proportions! Darlene DePape

All about the actors - not Scotland

The two narrators are very taken with themselves. They have great voices and I hope they narrate a novel sometime. They think they are humorous, but this sounds like two guys joshing a bit with each other back and forth. Not really funny, not interesting. It is all about the two of them, with very little revealed about the qualities of Scots. They are mostly promoting Outlander and themselves. Lip service given to battles and castles, nothing that gives real insight into the country or the personality of Scots. Very disappointing, especially after Diana Gabaldon's glowing intro.

Like Scottish Storytime

The narration left me feeling like I was on the adventure myself and yet pining to return to the Scottish highlands. Recommend pairing this listen with a good Scotch.

Highly entertaining!

Oh my, I could listen to these two men all day; their witty banter, insightful Scottish historical recaps and adventurous anecdotes had me in stitches! In a world where things are feeling a tad bleak at the moment, Sam and Graham’s audiobook was a welcome escape from it all. Highly recommended if you’re into a good time! I am sincerely looking forward to their Men in Kilts show on Starz to see their (mis)adventures in action! Thank you, gentlemen :)

Not sure what I was expecting...

Although I greatly admire and respect the acting chops of both men, I can't say I'm a fan of this book. I know I'm in the minority here, but I think I was hoping for more history and less banter. I found the material to be too busy and too disjointed/choppy for my taste. I was previously a fan of the show Outlander, and my passion for history sent me on a quest to learn more about Culloden and other things Scotland, so again, my wants from this book were more history-based. Both men are captivating and charming, and this audiobook will surely appeal to the Outlander community, but it wasn't for me.

MARK ME - You Will Love It!

Sam & Graham embark on a road trip through their beloved homeland of Scotland. The men are very animated when talking about the history, artifacts & Scottish stories. They talk about the different clans, feuds & stories with great passion & enthusiasm. Outlander fans will love the reminiscing about their experiences on the set of the Outlander series. The guys throw jabs at each other with a dry sense of humor throughout the book. I’ve listened to it twice! The stories & history are so rich & interesting. I wish I was on the trip with Sam & Graham. The narration is great. I can listen to those sexy accents forever. It’s a really great listening experience. I hope this is helpful.

A clash of humor, history and heart

As a fan of Sam and Graham I expected to like the book, what I didn’t expect was to fall in love with it. The history is passionate and immersive transporting you to the beautiful Highlands of Scotland. The humor is relatable and enjoyable, making you laugh out loud in each chapter. But the heart they’ve poured into this book is noticed from the cover to the back jacket. Being narrated by Sam and Graham allows you to hear the nuances of love, friendship and passion bringing you along for the ride in a beat up camper van. Well done and congratulations.

A marvelous tale of two friends exploring Scotland

I am new to the Outlander universe (thanks Covid) I became a fan of both Sam and Graham only eight months ago. Never would I have imagined that Diana‘s original tale (and all 8 books actually) would help me learn so much about Scotland, history and the American Revolution. When I learned that Men in Kilts was going to become a book I knew I had to purchase it. Never did I expect to both laugh and cry throughout this audiobook. The banter, the stories, the road trip, the nicknames, and learning more about Scotland has just further opened my heart. (I was also looking for some good scotch recommendations so now I will have to try some of these). I have dived deeper into my family history, knowing that my maternal grandfather was from Scotland, I have explored our family genealogy and discovered more about my ancestors.
Once the world opens up again I will be booking a trip to Scotland and can’t wait to explore some of these beautiful sites. As election day was yesterday and the negative political climate which has consumed us for far too long, this book was a welcome respite from the depressing news/TV and all the strife. Thank you for your positivity and generosity in sharing so much about yourselves Sam and Graham! Kudos and much success to you both, surely hoping for a book two! Slainte!

Stunning Clansland Book

This is my first time using the Audible app. Clanslands is marvelously written and so entertaining. I just finished listening on my walk today. I was laughing and smiling so everyone who passed me smiled back. I am a history buff so I loved learning about Scotland. The friendship between Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish is very endearing. I enjoyed all the anecdotes. I have the greatest respect for Sam Heughan and Gavin McTavish. Both gentlemen are so talented and are truly Renaissance men. I did not know about “Outlander” until Feb. of this year. I have all the books twice, bought all the DVD’s, and have the STARZ subscription. I am totally “Outlander” obsessed. I ordered their book the day it was first released. I am very much looking forward to the TV version of “Men in Kilts.” I especially appreciate that Sam Heughan acknowledged his Mother, Chrissy first and that Graham acknowledged his family. Family is so precious. Thank you for sharing your gifts and talents!

Just what we need !!

Even if you don’t know these gentlemen, you will enjoy this travelogue from 2 very silly kilted Scottish men. Outlander fans already know how hilarious they are...a treat for you. Their love of country and history of the clans is evident from their passionate storytelling. The highjinks of their travel will make you laugh while you learn a bit about them as actors and people. Keep an eye out for “Men in Kilts” TV show. We are so proud of Sam & Graham for this love letter to Scotland...

Fabulous - even better than Outlander, if that is possible

Sam and Graham tell tales of history—Scotland’s and their own. They reflect on filming Outlander. They are brilliant and funny and wildly entertaining. Their voices are warm like being under a blanket sitting near the fireplace on a snowy night...sipping a bit of whisky.

Friendship and discoveries like no other

You've always wanted to know where Rob Roy's grave was. Here you are ! Let's those two marvellous voices tell you the story.
Before you get to it, you 'll have shared with them a lot of fun, discoveries and had the feeling that life is all about sharing moments with friends. Cerise sur le gâteau : they make us feel we are part of it !
What a nice time I had.
Longing to watch the road trip.

Entertaining

Brilliantly read by the two rascals. I didn't know quite what to expect when I first bought the paper version but was agreeably surprised to find it quite amusing as well as interesting. When I saw that there was an audible version I jumped on it as it's so much better to have the voices of Graham and Sam, making it even more fun to listen to. I really enjoyed the book.

Bravo pour ce travail remarquable !

J'ai adoré le livre de Graham et Sam, du début à la fin... beaucoup d'humour durant les 16 chapitres mais aussi quelques moments douloureux de l'histoire des Highlands.
