As part of our annual writing project – Scotland's Stories – we asked people all over Scotland to submit true stories inspired by the theme, Adventure.

A selection of Scotland's Stories were published in a free book for Book Week Scotland, our national celebration of books and reading.

From finding your feet in a new place, falling back into our most cherished memories, or simply deciding to strike out on a new path, our adventures – and who we choose to share them with – are deeply connected to our story, giving us a better sense of the world and our place in it.
