Episode 5 of Northern Bibliosphere is out now!

Today’s guest is an engineer by trade and an author by passion: we were delighted to have Paul A. Lynn talking about creativity, engineering and history which all feature in his latest book: A Scotsman Returns: Thomas Telford in the Highlands and Islands.

In his work, Lynn retraces a journey across the North of Scotland that Telford one of the most celebrated civil engineers of all time took together with poet Laureate Robert Southey in 1819. Telford’s personal story is retraced in this travelogue that revisits places in the Highlands where he worked over a period of 20 years, taking a fascinating look at the impact his work had on the region.
