Desire Lines

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.

During the 17th Century the Prestons of Valleyfield mined coal here to fire
saltpans which were said to have operated throughout the night ... The old salt
pans are now being filled by the ash waste slurry from Longannet Power Station
as part of a large land reclamation project. The path now leads into the villages of
Newmills and Tor- ryburn. ... The worldwide-known phrase "Women and children
first," cried out by captains manning their sinking ships, can trace its origins to
Torryburn.
