Old habits die hard in Scotland. During the year, communities in every corner of the country get up to all sorts of capers in the name of tradition: you'll find the strangest activities if you search hard enough and discover there's more to Scotland than Burns' Night. This is a custom-made guide to Scotland's annual festivals in all their wonder and eccentricity by a man who decided to spend his year living ceremoniously. From Up-Helly-Aa in Shetland to the Burning of the Clavie in Burghead, from the Stonehaven Fireballs to South Queensferry's Burry Man, Great Balls of Fire is a hilarious and insightful journey around the nation that should not be missed.
