Sally Magnusson brings together thirty well-known names together to discuss their most sacred spots, including golfing legend Catriona Matthew,  the Duke of Buccleuch, Richard Scott, Chief Social Policy Adviser to the Scottish Government, Linda Bauld and Sue Lawrence, the queen of Scottish baking.

As we discover their pivotal moments in life through in-depth interviews and delve into the minds of each personality, we find deeply personal stories that enlighten us, spark our curiosity and show us that everyone has struggles, triumphs and moments which tie us to places indefinitely.

Alongside stunning photography by Susie Lowe, My Perfect Place in Scotland is a captivating collection which highlights the importance of supporting mental health and wellbeing and reveals the special places where we choose to spend our time, which mean so much more than just a pretty view.
