Rod Macdonald has put together a very professional diving guide book to Scotland's Greatest Wrecks. I always have problems with any title that includes words such as the "best," "top" or "greatest" simply because any such claim is always subjective. As I have said before, my list will always be different from your list and neither of us is either right or wrong, it's just the way it is. That said, each of the shipwrecks in this selection of ten taken from around the Scottish coastline appears to have an excellent pedigree. Eight are found in "Diver" magazine's list of the best 100 British Wrecks and 4 are even in the top 10.

Personally, I have used another of Rod Macdonald's books on a number of professional assignments to Scapa Flow and I have yet to find that book lacking in any way. This book is very similar in appearance and is clearly just as thoroughly researched and prepared.

"Dive Scotland's Greatest Wrecks" measures a little under 10" x 7" with a hard cover and comes from "Mainstream Publishing" of Edinburgh. There are 176 pages of narrative - all well supported by a large number of black and white photographs (many of which are historic), diagrams and maps plus a further eight pages of colour photographs in the middle. The book is well laid out - beginning with that all-important acknowledgement of the many people who helped make the book possible and an informative introduction. Overall, the style is easy to read and the information imparted in this first chapter provides an excellent background for what is to follow.

This is the 10 featured wrecks; Hispania, Rondo, Breda, HMS Port Napier, Wallachia, Akka, San Tiburco, Fram, Köln and Kronprinz Wilhelm.
