Sam Heughan Launches His First Book, WayPoints!

sam heughan everest

After experimenting with writing a book with colleague and friend Graham McTavish with Clanlands, Sam Heughan is ready to embark on a new writing experiment, solo this time, with his first book Waypoints, published by Octopus Publishing Group.

In this journey of self-discovery, Sam Heughan sets out along the West Highland Way to explore his heritage and reflect on the personal waypoints that define him.

The result is a love letter to the wild Scottish landscape that means so much to Sam. And a charming, funny, wise and searching insight to the world through his eyes.

The walk itself is the backdrop for this narrative. It tells the story of Sam’s life while exploring his outlook, values and interests. Sam is a figure of fascinating contrasts, a Hollywood star with deep roots in rural Scotland, he’s both outgoing and content in his own company. He has strong connections with his fans while recognising the fragility and value of anonymity. In My Peak Challenge he has created a network that brings people together as they chase individual goals. In his new book, while charting a path through a stunning wilderness, Sam maps out the moments that shaped his views on dreams and ambition, family, friendships, love and life.

Waypoints is a deeply personal journey that reveals as much to Sam about himself as it does to his readers.

Waypoints is a memoir with a difference! I wanted to tell the stories and share the experiences that have shaped me, but to do that I needed to challenge myself and spend some time in my own company, away from the distractions of everyday life. And for me there’s no better place to reflect than in the wild Scottish Highlands.’
