Summary from Goodreads:

Journey deep into the Scottish Highlands in the first memoir by #1 New York Times bestselling author and star of Outlander, Sam Heughan—exploring his life and reflecting on the waypoints that define him

"I had to believe, because frankly, I had come so far there could be no turning back."

In this intimate journey of self-discovery, Sam sets out along Scotland's rugged ninety-six-mile West Highland Way to map out the moments that shaped his views on dreams and ambition, family, friendship, love, and life. The result is a love letter to the wild landscape that means so much to him, full of charming, funny, wise, and searching insights into the world through his eyes.

Waypoints is a deeply personal journey that reveals as much about Sam to himself as it does to his readers.

It can be difficult for someone with a colorful background to open up and be real about their upbringing and life, but Sam Heughen has done a wonderful job of releasing the burden of his past.

This was a wonderful story to read. Not only was the writing and story telling on point, but the realness from Heughen gave the book so much more emotion than just a book full of life experiences. He talks about his past, how he fell into acting and how he is dealing with life now.

I loved everything about this book. A great Sunday afternoon read.
