Henry Canova Vollam Morton FRSL (known as H. V. Morton), (26 July 1892 – 18 June 1979) was a journalist and pioneering travel writer from Lancashire, England. He was best known for his prolific and popular books on London, Great Britain and the Holy Land. He first achieved fame in 1923 when, while working for the Daily Express, he scooped the official Times correspondent during the coverage of the opening of the Tomb of Tutankhamun by Howard Carter in Egypt. (Wikipedia).

″This companion volume to in search of Scotland is the record of a long and leisurely journey. In the course of it I have shaken up the dust of history and I have tried also to put into words the impression made by Scotland upon the mind of a stranger who, for some reason or other, always feels happy over the border” (H.V. Morton).
