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

Great Book

This book was highly entertaining and very informative. I enjoyed the history and how it was presented. The personal experiences of the authors were a nice added touch. The book sparked my interest in discovering my own Scottish heritage.

Delight for Outlander fans!

I love Outlander,the show, and therefore both Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish ! They are great at narrating and especially well suited for this type of a book since both have voices,accents and vocabularies perfectly suited for a book rich in tales of time and picturesque settings.

An excellent experience from the Very 1st word

I loved every moment of this book. Sam and Graham approach their adventures with heart and share it openly with us all. I laughed out loud and even cried a bit. These two share with us their love of Scotland, its history and each other. so much fun!

one of my favorite downloads

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was full of interesting facts about Scotland and tones of lol moments . Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish have a hilarious relationship . They really make you feel as if you've taken the trip through the Castles and ruins of Scotland with them.

Great for Outlander Fans

This is a great listen-especially if you’re an Outlander fan. Lots of Scottish history, insights into Sam and Graham’s past work and, of course, shenanigans.

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!

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...

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!

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.
