Kessock Books, based in Inverness, publish an entertaining, informative and eclectic range of books on and about the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.
Our titles celebrate the astonishing and diverse landscapes, the mixture of cultures, and the complex and fascinating history of this remarkable region. In so doing, we question the prevalent myths and legends, in particular those surrounding the 19th-century adoption of ‘Highlandism’.
Highland Survivor was awarded ‘2017 Railway Book of the Year’ by the Railway & Canal Historical Society (RCHS). The book was one of three category winners selected from an original long list of 89 books, and is David Spaven’s second award from the RCHS, having won ‘2013 Popular Transport Book of the Year’ for his best-selling Mapping the Railways.
Our publishing policy is to be informative, eclectic and entertaining, and our market comprises tourists, locals, incomers and everyone interested in this special part of the world.
