Scotland's landscape is wildly diverse, ranging from towering mountains reflected in mirror-like lochs to ancient castles and bustling city streets. This wonderful book provides historic, geographic and arts-based text alongside captivating images of everywhere from the Borders in the south to Orkney in the north. The desirable, chunky format makes this an excellent travel companion for discovering both tourist destinations and lesser-known idyllic sites.
