Rough Guide To Scotland

The Rough Guide to ScotlandThe Rough Guide to Scotland (Rough Guide... Despite the best efforts of an unreliable climate, Scotland is, quite simply, a wonderfully rewarding and diverse country to visit, encompassing everything from the rolling countryside of the Borders to the wild and weather-beaten islands that arc around its west and north coasts. Many parts of the mainland are surprisingly accessible, with remote lochs, glens and Highland mountains lying less than two hours' travel from Edinburgh and Glasgow, two of Britain's most complex and intriguing cities. Rough Guide To Scotland.

The Rough Guide to EdinburghThe Rough Guide to Edinburgh (Miniguides... The Rough Guide to Edinburgh is the definitive pocket handbook to Scotland's absorbing capital, featuring: informed accounts of all the city's historic buildings, galleries and attractions, from the ancient Castle to the new National Museum of Scotland; insider's tips on the best places to stay, drink and eat, for all budgets; the pick of the day-trips, including Glasgow, Stirling and St. Andrews, as well as Highland walks and sandy beaches; and full-colour maps with grid references for every attraction. Rough Guide To Scotland.

The Rough Guide to Scottish Highlands and IslandsThe Rough Guide to Scottish Highlands... And Islands. The Rough Guide acknowledges the fact that visitors to Scotland will find at least two different worlds, the Scottish Lowlands, extending from the English border to the two major cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh, and, to some extent, following the east coast round through the cities of Dundee and Aberdeen. Much of the tourist trade will be centred on this area, with many people heading in to the two major cities. City guides are available, meeting the specific needs of visitors to, say, the Edinburgh Festival or exploring the many attractions of the capital or of Glasgow. Travel within the Lowlands is fairly well catered for, but once you leave the Lowlands and enter the Highlands, you are into a very different world. The Highlands is characterised by its mountains, with limited road access, and very limited rail access. Roads often become single track, or even dirt track, weaving their ways through the mountain valleys. The weather can be variable, and any traveller has to view this region with respect. The Rough Guide to the Scottish Highlands and Islands is a densely packed little volume, crammed with maps, cultural and historical insights, route planners, information about hotels and Bed and Breakfasts, eating places, drinking places, local folk festivals and games, etc., etc. This is truly a traveller's guide, it is not a picture book, but an essential tool for anyone planning a visit to the region, offering an encyclopaedic coverage of the options available.
