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!
I lived in the Lakes for 30 yrs then moved to Scotland where I have been for 27 yrs. The West Coast is an amazing playground for all sorts of outdoor activities and I have enjoyed both good and bad weather but the good has vastly out-numbered the bad. This book made me want to move again; surely it is not as bad as this book depicts or have I been wearing rosy spectacles all this time ?
I am less aquatinted with the East Coast but I have been there and it certainly has a lot going for it, as does the top of Scotland.
The less populated middle to North has amazing valleys and mountains. I enjoy irony and various senses of humour but this book was was a bit heavy on both to be an enjoyable read. Sorry Steve.
I loved the authors way of cutting through the tourist brochures rose tinted view and actually saying in print what most of us are thinking when we arrive at these places.
I love the idea of a campervan holiday but the harsh reality is that it becomes nothing more than a mobile prison cell when the weather is bad. Infact scratch that. At least a cell has a toilet, decent heating and three square a day. Has it put me off the idea?
Not one bit. A great read with some genuine funny observations and comments.
