Long Walk Home is a two-volume book by Scottish-born, London-based photographer Robbie Lawrence that explores the Highland Games. Photographing both in the Scottish Highlands and North America, his photographs question the notion of belonging to a place.

“The Games have always interested me, not just visually, but also as a vehicle for considering how we as Scots allow history to inform our modern identity. At first, I struggled to look past the myth-making and nationalism often espoused in the Games. I was trying to document these events objectively, without clarifying with myself how I felt about them. What you see in the pages of these two volumes is an attempt to engage with the myriad of fabricated ideas surrounding the modern Highland Games. Whether on a dusty sports field in Denver or at the local park at Burntisland, the Games is at its core a coming together of friends and family to enjoy sports, dance and music.”
– John Burnside
