Book Description

15 Aug 2010 Landscapes
This book brings to life some of the most breathtaking scenery in the British Isles. The author has explored every nook and cranny of the Highlands and Skye - as well as the mountaintops. The Highlands are one of Europe's last great wilderness areas, one of the few remaining landscapes where the luxuries of solitude, silence and space abound.

While the tourist boards tend to perpetuate the myths of kilt and bagpipe, the Loch Ness monster and romantic medieval castles, most people visit Scotland for the reality - for the beauty and great diversity of its scenery, to discover remote lochs, atmospheric glens and dramatic mountains.

Touring the Scottish Highlands by car, enjoying the picnic suggestions, or walking in the Scottish Highlands, this book will allow you to discover the very best the Highlands have to offer. The book covers a vast geographical area - over half of Scotland in fact.

Stephen Whitehorne is one of Scotland's best-known photographer/authors. The photographic images in this book - all of calendar quality - will whet your appetite and remain a wonderful souvenir of your holiday in the Highlands.

10 car tours (with accompanying touring maps), 45 long and short walks (each with 1:50,000 topo map), 12 picnic suggestions. Free online update service with specific route change information on the publisher's website, maintained daily.

The 'Landscapes' series, with 50 destinations, has been dubbed 'the blue Bibles' by the Sunday Times and led to Sunflower being one of only four publishers (from a field of 18) chosen as a Which? Recommended Provider of Guidebooks.

This wilderness gives me not only the fresh air and physical rejuvenation I crave, but it affects me on a far more profound level as well, providing endless poetic and aesthetic inspiration for my work as a photographer. The region's social and natural history is fascinating, but this landscape can be an essential spiritual refuge too. --(Stephen Whitehorne, author)

The car tours and walks included in the book provide the ideal combination for those searching for those searching out [the most] popular locations but at the same time the not-so-popular spots where hopefully an opportunity for a new viewpoint materialises. A very valuable addition to my location library and I only wish there were more available for the UJ as I would certainly be the first in the queue. --(DF, Amazon)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great landscape photography guide. 24 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback
For the last 10 plus years I have been travelling the UK in my pursuit of capturing images of the wonderfully diverse landscape. I use many types of media for researching and locating suitable locations and with the west coast of Scotland being one of my favourite areas I purchased this book. The car tours and walks included in the book provide the ideal combination for searching out those popular locations but at the same time the not so popular spots where hopefully an opportunity for a new viewpoint materialises. A very valuable addition to my location library and I only wish there were more available than there are for the UK as I would certainly be first in the queue.

I used this book as background with several other sources to help me design my own tour of Scotland. It provided helpful background and ideas that I adapted to suit my interests and schedule.

1.0 out of 5 stars Landscapes- Skye 11 Oct 2012
By Ruth
Format:Paperback
I bought this book for my holiday to Skye. There is only one car tour for Skye and only two walks. The walks are numbered incorrectly on the map- often a problem with the Landscapes Series, I find. I wouldn't buy this book for going to Skye, but if your trip involves other parts of the Scottish Highlands too, it may be worth considering.
