Lorraine has released a book called 


Lorraine Kelly's Scotland


available at all good book shops





From childhood family day trips to Loch Lomond, to her days as TVam's roving correspondent, Lorraine Kelly has covered the length and breadth of Scotland. But certain special places tug at her heartstrings and lure her back time and time again. Travelling to the highlands and islands and all her favourite places in between, this is Lorraine's personal journey around her beautiful and beguiling country.
Each and every stop gives rise to fascinating stories and memories along the way, from her adopted home of Dundee to the wild and remote islands of St Kilda. She revisits childhood haunts in Glasgow, indulges in a spot of whisky-tasting on the island of Islay and reveals what led her to once arrive in Edinburgh pushing a pram and wearing a pair of rollerskates. She rediscovers the joys of the natural wilderness in the Highlands, visits a dramatic Viking fire festival in Shetland and recalls the week she and her family spent hunting the Loch Ness monster . . .
Beautifully illustrated with stunning original photographs, Lorraine Kelly's Scotland is a celebration of a gloriously diverse country with a deep and rich heritage, told with all Lorraine's characteristic warmth and humour

Lorraine Kelly tells how she delivered speech at Dundee University while wrecked on absinthe




Lorraine Kelly has told how she gave one of the biggest speeches of her life – while wrecked on absinthe.
The breakfast TV queen had to give an address to students after being elected rector of Dundee University in 2004.
But she’d been taken round the town on the traditional inaugural pub crawl beforehand – and the students picked her drinks.
Lorraine, 53, recalled in a new book: “Whenever a new rector is installed they are dragged around the city in a coach pulled by the strongest members of the rugby club and are obliged to stop off at various hostelries.
“I didn’t get to choose any of my tipples in the various bars we visited, which is why I found myself downing a pint of heavy, followed by a massive glass of absinthe and then some rather odd cocktails.
“I’m surprised I made it through my inauguration speech.”
The star recalls her boozy day in Lorraine Kelly’s Scotland, where she explores her homeland from Selkirk to St Kilda.
She also admits she can’t remember much about going to Buckingham Palace in 2012 to receive the OBE from the Queen – but this time, there was no alcohol involved.
Lorraine wrote: “I cried through the whole ceremony and, to this day, I have absolutely no idea what the Queen said to me.
“Her Majesty is obviously very used to dealing with overwhelmed subjects. She smiled very kindly as she gently eased me away.”
