Filled with breathtaking photography, this book captures the visual essence of Scotland - and not just the romanticised Victorian view of tartan and deer stalking, bagpipes and whisky. This is the real Scotland; from John o'Groats to Gretna Green; from the Western Isles to the Granite City of Aberdeen; from the harsh landscape of the Highlands to the lush Borders; from Bannockburn to Culloden, this book reveals the people and the places north of Hadrian's famous wall. This book helps you discover the beauty of Scotland and the richness of its history in this lavishly illustrated history. It is part of the "Photographic Journey" series, featuring wonderful photography that allows the reader to discover the beauty and sites of countries or cities around the world. Each book also offers a historical introduction. It includes 159 beautiful full colour photographs, many full-page and double-page spreads.
