Product Description

Review

‘The only guide worth a damn’
The Scotsman

‘Infallible and quite brilliant’
Daily Telegraph

‘Makes all other guides to Scotland redundant’
The Sunday Times

‘Apart from a clever structure and the highest journalistic standards, this book is a joy. The clever thing about such opinionated copy is that pretty soon one picks up the character of the writer, and thus can get a much more accurate and tactile impression of a place than from so-called even handed reports. This book can only enhance the pleasure of visiting or living in Scotland’
Amazon

‘The plain truth is that this book does not put foot wrong: every one of the places that I have visited on Mr Irvine’s recommendation has lived up to or exceeded its billing’
Amazon

The Scotsman

'The only guide worth a damn'

As a native Scot I have used this book frequently to the extent that it is now falling to pieces! Not only are the recommendations for hotels, restaurants, walks, beaches, historical places, waterfalls etc etc consistently good, they are well laid out and easy to access. I use this book as a guide when I want (eg)a restaurant to eat in, but I also love to peruse it as a reading book, inspiring me to visit new places and take detours off my regular routes.

I would highly recommend this book to locals and tourists alike. Buy it well in advance and use it to plan your visits. If you are a foody you'll get hungry reading the descriptions of restaurants and if you've never been here before the 'tick' rating system will help you decide upon the best things to do.

Another of those helpful books that give you an idea of what to do, where to stay etc in Scotland. However, bear in mind that like most books of this type its reports are based on what the writer has actually experienced in Scotland not necessarily the 'best' of Scotland. So some of the best.....in his opinion. Handy, nevertheless.

This is not the book that I thought it would be but it was a real eye opener. New ideas/suggestions for well known places. This was a 2005 copy but still useful.
Colin.
