"Lucy Mallows delivers a brilliantly informative, yet concise guide. I got the feeling she must have spent a lifetime exploring every town, valley and craggy peak of this magnificent country. Everything a traveler could possibly need to know is here; from which trains to catch to arrive at a chosen destination, to reviews on hotels, interesting things to check out, places to eat, even things to avoid. I especially enjoyed her own personal comments, which are sprinkled throughout the book. Thank you, Lucy!" --J. Kleinschmidt
"I've read your book from cover to cover - and love it!" --Richard Andolsen
"Good coverage, excellent maps, well informed." --Mr. S. Barton, London
