One clear morning in May, Nick Thorpe left his Edinburgh flat, ducked off the commuter route and hitched a ride aboard a little white canal boat, heading west towards the sea.

It was the first mutinous step in a delightful boat-hopping odyssey that would take him 2500 miles through Scotland's canals, lochs and coastal waters, from the industrial Clyde to the scattered islands of Viking Shetland. With no transport of his own, the optimistic writer relied on an eccentric cast of sailors, visionaries and nautical nomads, boarding anything from a fishing trawler to a leaky rowing tub, from a sea kayak to a yellow submarine. Part travelogue, part memoir, Adrift in Caledonia is a unique and affectionate portrait of a sea-fringed nation - and of the drifter's quest to belong.
