The Rough Guide to Scotland (Rough Guide Travel Guides)
After visiting Scotland for the first time recently, I realised that I wanted to know more at what I was looking at!
The Rough Guide is ideal...easy to find pages, photos, small histories, succinct backgounds....almost as much pleasure reading as when visiting.
Cannot recommend highly enough.

I take issue with the complaint (above) about lack of information on the Highlands as Rough Guides do publish a separate title for "Highlands and Islands". If people want more detail about this area then buy that book instead.

An excellent title and very high quality.

This guide was out of date when I bought it and I knew it. I have had a lot of experience of Rough Guides in the past and have found them all very good and so wanted to stay with them for this trip. There is a new edition or this guide being released soon however because we were going away before the new edition was due to be released I had to buy this one.

It is impossible for one book to cover an entire country in any great depth and there were some places that were missed from the guide. That said the guide definitely helped us get a lot more enjoyment on our holiday and I would have no hesitation in recommending Rough Guides to anyone who was wanting a guidebook.

Having lived in Edinburgh for 25 years I decided to get the Rough Guide to Scotland. after all I get them to places I visit. From what I can see this is an excellent guide. The places mentioned I the ones I would visit. The restaurants and pubs mentioned are ones I would be happy to go to if I came to Edinburgh.

We bought this book to take along during a drive around the Scotland mainland and it proved really handy. We had decided not to take along computer and stay away from internet and fully enjoy our time while there so Rough guide was our main source of local information. Hotels were booked in advance but what to see and what restaurants to try were really useful. Did not find any recommendations too off the mark and found the book as addictive as research internet just before a holiday. We liked it so much that next year we used the same version to carry along in another holiday again to Scotland to visit the nocks and corners we had missed the previous year. The book is still there but I think for next holiday the newer version will be more appropriate. Recommended to anyone considering holidays in Scotland.

I used this for my recent trip to Scotland. I only visited Highlands so I can comment only about the part of book that covers Highlands.
The book doesn't really cover anything in much details and doesn't provide any useful information that you can't find on any free websites on internet.

I was hoping this guide will cover much of the interesting things that can be done in Scotland but it only covered the things that you can check with anyone who has briefly visited Highlands.
