Circumstances permitted us only a one-week visit to Scotland, and this book helped us make every day full and enjoyable. It led us to out-of-the-way places we never would have found on our own. Its straightforward descriptions made it easy to choose among several options in any area that we traveled through.

Thus we found Innerperfray Library with its librarian, Mr. Powell, and his entertaining personal tour, walks in the woods of Glen Coe and Loch Leven, the slate quarry at Ballachulish, the isl

Una guida imprescindibile per chi si accinge a visitare la Scozia.
E' la piu' completa ed esaustiva che abbia mai letto, esseziale, senza fronzoli, con una quantita' enorme di informazioni (utili) e soprattutto, veritiera e mai di parte.

Altro aspetto importante: i consigli degli esperti su ogni attivita'

An outstanding and very detailed guide. I knew practically nothing about the country. It took a few months to read cover to cover, but now having read this guide I have enough knowledge to plan my first trip there later this year. The appendices have historical background and also a basic primer to Scottish Garlic. Worth every cent!

I've begun this, but now (July 3) will pause as it has left in our car - to continue later this summer during our roadtrip in Scotland.
