“Let’s go, shall we? Just the two of us?”
This opportunity was too good to miss, so I packed my flight bag and was off to visit “the lowlands.” We stayed at some lovely “bed & breakfast” spots, fared sumptuously –even ate at a place Bobby Burns frequented– and toured the shops, castles, craigs and kirks of bonny Scotland. Liz Curtiss-Higgs was my awesome guide on this journey and I enjoyed every minute!
Liz has written a number of historical romances set in the southwestern part of Scotland; in My Heart’s in the Lowlands she invites you to accompany her on a tour of Dumfries and Galloway. She vividly describes castle ruins, ancient churches, Bobby Burns’ home town, local accommodations, food, shops and customs.
I enjoyed this book very much when I read it the first time but when I discovered later that my Vance ancestors came from Galloway, the travelogue took on a whole new meaning for me.
