This interesting and informative history will be treasured . . . I look forward to approaching future walks with a renewed understanding of the forces that shaped our towns and countryside, and the people who lived and worked here before us. --The Herald
Some books are simply enjoyable. Others are a joy. 'A History of Scotland's Landscapes' is both. There's something about a large, beautifully-produced and magnificently-illustrated book that brings out the inner five-year-old in all of us: the sense of 'wow'; as you first open the book and leaf through, simply soaking in the pictures and the scale of the authors' achievement . . . An outstanding book likely to be of immense value to anyone who takes an interest in the landscapes we see around us in Scotland. --Undiscovered Scotland
There are so many books about the wondrous beauty of Scotland's mountains, rivers, forests and lochs. But I was engrossed from the offset by high-quality photography, accompanied by serious but accessible historical and archaeological prose . . . This is a book you're really going to want on your coffee table --The Bookseller
