Hamish McHaggis

Hamish McHaggis

Everyone knows that a haggis is an animal, right? Perhaps not, but the story lives on in the form of Hamish McHaggis, the star of a Edinburgh author Linda Strachan’s books for younger readers.

Hamish McHaggis’s travels in the Whirry Bang – a slightly unreliable car of his own construction – find him and his friends Angus the pine marten, Rupert the hedgehog, and Jeanie the osprey getting into all sorts of adventures.

Illustrated by Sally J. Collins, the series takes readers on a journey with Hamish and his friends through various locations in Scotland.
