Rob Roy is a captivating novel of chivalry and romance set in the Scottish highlands of the 18th c. After rejecting the life his father has laid out for him, Frank Osbaldistone is sent to the North of England to live with his Uncle, where he is to repent his sins. However, when his father’s wealth and reputation are threatened, he is drawn to the Scottish Highlands where he must retrieve a set of stolen documents. It is here that he is pulled into a number of skirmishes relating to the Jacobite uprising of 1715, and where his path frequently crosses with the mysterious maverick outlaw known as Rob Roy… Scott’s portrayal of Scotland is remarkable in its vivid and evocative panorama of the highlands, and his insightful exploration of social, economic and historic themes. Sean Barrett also reads Molloy, Malone Dies, The Unnamable, Waiting for
Godot and Kafka on the Shore for Naxos AudioBooks. His film, theatre and television credits include War & Peace, Peter Pan, Minder and Father Ted.
