I love the Eyewitness Travel guides. They're clean, regularly updated, and give the highlights of what a traveller should consider seeing when they visit a country. Now that I am moving to Scotland, I figured I should pick up a copy to help me figure out my bearings and plan a year of activities and trips!
DK travel books are never very high on my list because I prefer more detailed information about where I am going, as opposed to flashy pictures and little substance. (I borrowed it from the library for a project, not because I was so excited about reading a DK book for personal travel.) But I got part of a picture of Scotland out of this, which was the basic idea.
This book is a thin book that gives you the highlights of things to see and do in Scotland. Good for an overview, but since it is not very indepth, I would recommend getting another guidebook if you are trying to plan a trip to Scotland. It is a good supplement I guess.
