David R Ross not only shows us his Scotland but he teaches us it too. You feel as though you are on the back of his motorcycle listening to the stories of his land as you fly with him up and down the smaller roads, the ‘desire lines’, of Scotland. Ross takes us off the beaten track and away from the main routes chosen for us by modern road builders.
He starts our journey in England and criss-crosses the border telling the bloody tales of the towns and villages. His recounting of Scottish history, its myths and its legends is unapologetically and unashamedly pro-Scots.
His tour takes us northwards towards Edinburgh through Athelstaneford, the place where the Saltire was born. From there we head to the Forth valley and on into the Highlands and beyond, taking in the stories of the villains and heroes through Scottish history.
Pride and passion for his country, the people, the future of Scotland; and his uncompromising patriotism shines through Desire Lines, David R Ross’s homage to his beloved country.
"...people have taken the shorter route - the route they wish to take... That is a desire line. It is the people's desire to take that line rather than the one that has been laid out for them."
David R. Ross
