1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid..., 21 April 2013
Bought partly due to other favourable reviews, I feel I should write a review for the benefit of other people considering buying this book...and my advice is to avoid it!

It was a very dreary read, and quite a let down. The writing is utterly banal, written in the present tense with lots and lots of. short. sentences. It seems to be the book version of an internet blog as a record of of an unlucky trip to Scotland with bad weather. It doesn't do justice to Scotland.

I picked up for 2 a copy of Christopher Somerville's book 'Sommervilles travels' - what a difference!
