about

‘Galloway is a wide, wild place where the raw edges of creation have not yet been rubbed down.’

If Galloway is Scotland’s best kept secret, S.R.Crockett (1859-1914) is probably Galloway’s best kept secret.  In this first volume of the series, Cally Phillips takes the reader on an armchair adventure into the Galloway hills, revealing that ‘Crockett Country’ is at least as much a place of the imagination as of strict topography or geography.

Inspired by Crockett’s 1904 publication ‘Raiderland,’ Cally says ‘I set off into the hills in search of adventure, with no fixed path or goal.  I imagined it would be lonely at times but I have never been alone in the company of Crockett, his characters and a plethora of guides both real and imaginary. Along the way I discovered something quite unexpected about the connection between fiction and reality.’

From Glentrool to Back Hill o’ the Bush, taking in Loch Enoch, The Dungeon of Buchan and many other places both real and imaginary, if you have never been into the Galloway Hills this book will make you want to go and if you know them well you’ll see them in quite a new light.

Cally Phillips is series editor of the 32 Volume anniversary edition of Crockett’s Galloway fiction:  ‘The Galloway Collection’ and founder of The Galloway Raiders.  It’s a free to join group – to find out more www.gallowayraiders.co.uk
