“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.

My Heart’s in the Lowlands by Liz Curtis Higgs is a virtual tour of some of the most beautiful and beloved places in southwest Scotland.

Liz Curtis Higgs is well-known for her historical christian fiction books set in Scotland (i.e. The Lowlands of Scotland series). In this non-fiction book Liz takes us on a 10-day journey with her around the countryside of Galloway visiting idyllic country villages, remote castles and churches, and even some of the places she used as settings in her fictional series. Liz is so enamored with the Scottish countryside that one can’t help but catch a bit of her excitement as you travel the pages of her book.

The tour begins in Glasgow as Liz collects a rental car and heads south past Sanquar to the tiny hamlet of Durisdeer. The sightseeing starts at the Durisdeer parish church and continues through the afternoon as Liz’s car winds through tiny villages and lands in the vicinity of Dumfries. We tag along as Liz gives us glimpses into each of the places she stops for a meal, throwing in Scottish vocabulary here and there to help foreigners get a feel for the words used in everyday life in the region of Galloway.

Each day is planned with historic sites, a museum or used bookstore, a handful of villages to delight any tourist, new foods to discover, and descriptions of the lush, magical countryside that enchants its visitors. Liz drives us to places like the Abbey Cottage Tearoom, the Shambellie House Museum of Costume, Drumcoltran Tower, the town of Castle Douglas, and Threave Gardens. Places full of history and overflowing with beauty appear on page after page. And Liz makes sure to tell the names of the roads she’s taking and other helpful travel info so people can find these places on their own!

Liz intersperses her touring with bits and pieces of history about the places she stops. She also includes quotes here and there from her novels so those familiar with her books can picture the places she was painting into her works of fiction. Notes are included in the back of the book so you can see what resources Liz used for her own travels (she returns to Scotland yearly) as well as for this book. She also mentions Scotland’s Gardens which is a charity listing all the private gardens open each year for a small entrance fee. It is worth checking their website for gardens in the area you may be traveling to.

Travel Notes: this would be a very helpful resource for planning a trip to the area of Galloway and Dumfries or for armchair travel in general.

Love Liz Curtis Higgs! Humor in all aspects of life. Enjoyed this travelogue-style telling of her trip to Scotland---the places she stayed, visited, people she met, and sometimes the food she ate. Felt like I was on a trip to Scotland with her, which is what her writing style intended.

This books is a breezy kind of travel guide, specific to SW Scotland. I myself traveled much of this area a few months ago. This is not an in-depth guide on what to see and where to stay, but more a compilation of experiences that the author had over a number of years.

If you are tired of reading typical "bullet-point" travel books, then I would read this one. Honestly, I wish I would have had this book prior to my trip - there are a few places that I wished I had better information on...

Enjoy....

Having seen Liz in person at women's conferences and reading many of her spiritual books, expected to enjoy this book and was really drawn in by her description of travelling in Scotland. Kind of like a best girlfriend telling you all about this fabulous trip! Really enjoyed reading of her adventures!

The descriptions of a trip to the Lowland of Scotland are outstanding. You get the distinct feeling of being there with the author. Lovely prose.

I loved everything about this book. It made me feel like I was right there in the Lowlands with Liz. This was a very detailed colorful book.

This book is a mini-vacation in Scotland! The illustrations and the descriptions make the reader feel as if they've been tagging along with Ms. Higgs.
I love Liz Curtis Higgs and all of her books. I have a hard time setting them down once I pick them up to read. They are very well written, and pull me into her stories like no other author can. In my mind she is the best author ever as far as womens books are concerned. I liked this particular book very much, but I absolutely loved her 4 novels that started with "Thorn in My Heart". They are my favorite women's books that I have ever purchased and read. I would definitely give them all 5 stars!
