Good travel guide for an overview. It does not dwell on the finer points, just the highlights, which is a useful starting point. Especially valuable was that the pull out map is on a water resistant, laminated cardstock. It didn't fall apart when it rained in Edinburgh! ...more

As part of my library's reading challenge I needed to read a book about a foreign country. Since travel books counted I chose this one. The concept behind this book is to provide a series of top ten lists for the person planning on visiting Scotland. The first part of the book presents lists based on specific subjects (i.e. walking routes, the National Gallery, fishing spots). This is followed by lists covering various geographic areas, either cities (Edinburgh, Glasgow) or regions (The Highland ...more

This is not just a single top 10 list, but is full of top 10 lists. Top 10 museums, lochs and mountains, castles and palaces, pubs and cafes, golf courses - it is all here, with the expected photos, maps, and descriptions that make DK Eyewitness Travel Guides so valuable. When you don't know where to go and have limited time (or want to see it all), these kinds of lists are really helpful. ...more

Helpful place to start -- ended up using the Google more than the book while in Scotland.

8.1.18-8.6.18 I like the format of the top 10. Scotland looks great. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

This book is a waste of money as well as the time and effort to read it.
Nothing off the beaten path, nothing unusual, nothing you can't find by
googling "Scotland" and that's free!

Great travel series. I have enjoyed reading others in the series on different countries.

A good place to start when planning a trip. Breaks its suggestions into manageable sections. The suggested itineraries, however, seem overly ambitious - not a huge drawback since they are really not the main feature of the book.

This is a short guide and you'll still need to do more research after reading it - but it gives you a quick reference to the main things to see and do, and is a nice place to start your research and to refer back to as you go. Some may prefer to skip this step and go righ

I plan to go to Scotland in July. One of the ladies suggested ordering this book as she has it and has put it to use. She suggests the other four ladies going on this trip order it, read it, and plan where we need to go, what we want to see, how we should dress, it is always damp and rainy in that country. What each lady is interested in. We will be gone ten days and try to cram as much in as we can, but not over do. This lady, who is arranging the trip, wants to make particular plans, not just ...more

I have several of these little pocket guides & each is excellent. Info is current, relevant & hits on everything you need to know (currency, customs, transportation, sights, food, laws, restaurants, hotels, hours of operation, history etc.)
It's easy to carry with you every day & I always use the excellent maps provided inside of major cities & rail/metro routes & stops.
Everything you'll need for a great price.

Good book for recommending things, but the actual Scotland travel book is only slightly larger and contains that much more detail for what you may want to do on your trip. I found this top 10 to not give as much detailed advice. Also, it was lacking in the Harry Potter department.

Not bad. Compact book with itineraries for Edinburgh and Glasgow, as well as the areas surrounding these 2 cities, with a map indicating how far these areas are. I would have liked it better if the itineraries provided a how-to-get-there section by public transport, as not everyone can drive.

Planning a trip to Scotland is proving to be a real challenge! But thumbs up for this guide, useful like the rest I've read and used from this series. ...more

Nice try. A top 10 list of many things. What makes the list? What classifies a place as a 5th or a 7th? Magic. At least tripadvisor is free with an adblocker.
