The first comprehensive guide to Scotland’s unique places and historic landscape since the 19th century, edited by the Director of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society.
This authoritative, comprehensive gazetteer, edited by Dr David Munro, Director of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society, includes over 8,000 up-to-date entries on cities, towns and villages, mountains, lochs and rivers, visitor attractions and monuments throughout the nation. Each entry places its subject in an appropriate historical, geological or environmental context, providing essential information of interest to a wide range of potential users.
The book starts with an introductory essay on the Landscapes of Scotland. There is also an extensive glossary of terms (including Gaelic words incorporated into many place names), and a detailed bibliography.
Street plans are provided for over 100 main towns and cities, as are maps of each administrative area, spread throughout the book.
There is a fully indexed full-colour atlas, providing a wealth of extra cartographic information.
