'the book is also a gospel, a love poem to Scotland and a patriotic tract'
'Nobody tells it better…All that's wonderful about Scotland is in the book' Daily Express
'Infallible and quite brilliant'
'Makes all other guides to Scotland redundant'
The Sunday Times
'The only guide worth a damn'
'he has been a driving force in Scottish tourism' Ecosse (Supp. To the Sunday Times - Scottish Edition)
'Irvine has also become quite the figurehead for Scottish tourism' Aberdeen Press & Journal
'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'
