Great Balls Of Fire

Old habits die hard in Scotland. During the year, communities in every corner of the country get up to all sorts of capers in the name of tradition: you'll find the strangest activities if you search hard enough and discover there's more to Scotland than Burns' Night. This is a custom-made guide to Scotland's annual festivals in all their wonder and eccentricity by a man who decided to spend his year living ceremoniously. From Up-Helly-Aa in Shetland to the Burning of the Clavie in Burghead, from the Stonehaven Fireballs to South Queensferry's Burry Man, "Great Balls of Fire" is a hilarious and insightful journey around the nation that should not be missed.
