Description of this Book

Where in the world do passenger planes land on the beach each day? Where might you search for the world's most famous underwater monster? Where would you find a capital city with more listed buildings than anywhere else in the world? Yes, in Scotland of course. The airport runway on the island of Barra is, simply, the beach. People still flock to Loch Ness in the hope of seeing the Loch Ness Monster. And Edinburgh has more listed buildings than any other capital city. Scotland is a fascinating exploration of the most beautiful country of the British Isles. From the pretty Georgian streets of Edinburgh's New Town to the Victorian grandeur and Art Deco delights of Glasgow, from the remote islands in the Hebrides to the bustle of the Edinburgh Festival, from Europe's oldest tree (a 3,000-year old twisted yew) to the majesty of Glenfinnan viaduct - made even more famous by the Harry Potter films - the book is packed with 200 spectacular colour photographs. Presented in a landscape format and with captions explaining the story behind each entry, Scotland is a stunning collection of images celebrating this beautiful country.
