'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'
'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'
‘The only travel guide that sells most in the country it is about’ Independent on Sunday

Excellent guide, but contrary to most other guides organized by themes rather than by locations, which makes the planning of a trip a bit of a hassle.Published 9 months ago by Thierry

I have a Scottish friend who now lives in Australia. She was born in the Gorbals so I am sure she will reminisce with the author of her childhood spent there.Published 21 months ago by Flexiworker
