About Alastair Scott

Alastair Scott is a writer, photographer, broadcaster and Yachtmaster Ocean sailing skipper. His work has been published in The NY Times Book Review, Time-Life, Readers Digest, Sunday Telegraph, The guardian, The Herald and The Scotsman, among others. He is the author of ten books.
'After leaving school and doing two useless degrees (German & Economics) I worked in a photographic studio in Edinburgh for eighteen months to learn the trade. Soon sickened of doing passport photos, weddings and portraits of children who delighted in throwing tantrums in revenge attacks on their parents and so set off to make my name as a travel photographer. Worked my way round the world on a five-year journey, mostly wearing a kilt (but abandoned it where it attracted hostile respones). On my return I set up my own photographic library, which I still run. Wrote a trilogy of books about my journey and this set up a lifestyle of travelling somewhere adventurous and writing a book about it. I got a dogteam and sled together and 'mushed' across Alaska, Tracks Across Alaska; cycled 5000 miles behind the Iron Curtain shortly before it fell (no book as yet!); learnt to sail and made a solo voyage round Ireland, Salt and Emerald; cycled round my homeland with a foreigner's eyes, Native Stranger…I also wrote a guidebook to Scotland and two novels. Am currently working on a children's novel.'
