Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan - Scottish interior designers, TV hosts, and property speculators - are cabin aficionados who divide their time between homes in Canada and their beloved Scotland.


Escapology: Modern Cabins, Cottages and Retreats is a stunning book of modern-day retreats - bucolic weekend escapes by the sea, remote getaways in the woods, and rustic mountain hideouts - to inspire peaceful and quiet living. The authors genuinely believe that cabin time has a remarkably positive impact on our health, wellbeing and our happiness. Whether it’s a rustic cottage nestled deep within a Nordic forest, a robust mountain lodge in Montana, a breathtaking treehouse in Canada, or a steel-walled, one-room “hotel” in Denmark, these retreats share one vital aspect in common: they proffer the chance to escape and to and live in harmony with nature, far from the madding crowd.


Part style bible and lifestyle manual, the book features a beautiful collection of classic and contemporary cottages and cabins, each accompanied by an informative design profile and beautifully photographed images. And of course, the book is also packed with practical building and design advice that fans of Colin and Justin have grown to love. You’ll find relevant information about different types of dwelling styles, builds, sustainability/off-grid living, tiny homes, renovation on a budget, room zonings, décor and everything in between.
