Lewis literary and culinary superstar Coinneach MacLeod is celebrating his sell-out third North American book tour with the announcement that he has become Scotland’s best selling cookbook author in the USA.

Talking on return from his 13-city book tour, Coinneach said: "I have loved my tour across North America. I’ve been so proud to share the recipes, culture, history and stories of the Outer Hebrides and Scotland, and delighted they have resonated with so many folk across the Atlantic."

Coinneach’s 16 night sell-out tour took him to Vancouver, Calgary, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Asheville, Dallas, Houston, Scottsdale, Jacksonville, Chicago, Pittsburgh and Toronto, which finished with an appearance on primetime Canadian TV show The Social, where he shared his recipes and stories with the celebrity guests and presenters.

The highlight of the tour was hosting a sell-out Hebridean Baker x Outlander event with international bestselling author Diana Gabaldon. Gabaldon, who has sold over 55 million copies of her Outlander series, took to the stage with Coinneach to share stories and their shared love of Scotland.

"I’ve signed over 3,500 copies of my cookbook and have loved meeting many folk with Hebridean and Scottish connections across the country’ said Coinneach. "I’m already looking forward to returning to the US in July for Grandfather Mountain Highland Games."

Coinneach recently celebrated the news that he was officially Scotland’s best-selling cookbook author for the past three years.
