Scotland the Brave Land – Day 4 of Where Am I Week!
We spent some time touring the Highlands earlier this month, and managed to get some great pictures on our travels, so over the course of the next week we have decided to hold a series of competitions over on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
Each day we will be giving our followers the chance to win a book if they correctly guess where the image was taken. The specific rules vary slightly for Facebook and Twitter, so I have included details below.
Day 4 Competition – Scotland the Brave Land!
Today we are giving away another copy of Scotland the Brave Land, 10,000 years of Scotland in Story by Stuart McHardy as well as a 50% off voucher for books bought on our website, valid on orders over £20.
This happens to coincide with both the launch of the book and the launch of Disney-Pixar’s new animated film Brave, from which the book takes its inspiration, focussing on a tradition of myth and storytelling of Scottish history.
This collection of tales is the next step for anyone wishing to look further into the traditions of Scotland. These enchanting tales reflect the wide diversity of its heritage and there are few aspects of Scottish tradition that have escaped memorialisation in folklore.
With its captivating, and often gruesome, tales of heroic warriors in battle, bold heroines, deceitful aristocracy, and supernatural creatures Brave Land is a journey into the cultural heritage of a nation and the folklore surrounding the creation of the breath-taking landscape of its country.
Scotland the Brave Land provides the reader the perfect opportunity to delve a little deeper into the myths, legends and history of this truly mesmerising country.
The Scotland the Brave Land competition will be running from the afternoon of Thursday 9th August, through to Friday 10th at 3PM, so make sure you keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter streams to see what image you have to identify the location of! We also plan to post further information about all the locations used over here on the blog once each of the winners have been announced!
