Students will be publishing The New Road by Neil Munro as an e-book this year. This is the first time that the book will be published in an electronic version.

Neil Munro (1863-1930) was a journalist and writer who worked for various newspapers, including The Glasgow News, and was one of the outstanding literary figures of his day. The New Road follows Aeneas Macmaster as he unravels the truth behind the death of his Jacobite father, and gradually becomes disillusioned with the glamorous view of the Highlands.
