This book filled the gap perfectly and my partner enjoyed reviewing and planning our visits using this book. It's well organised if a little hard to read but only because of the sheer volume of content it has. It also doesn't have much in the way of pictures which surprised me but didnt stop it being useful.
My only bugbear is the author seems to use his book to take a dig at and berate caravan and motorhome owners for example and doesn't waste an opportunity to say what a blight they are. Ironic really as they are probably a good portion of the people who are his customers. These little remarks grated on me even though I had neither a carvan or a motorhome and is why I have docked it a star. I felt like he was saying "Best country in the world, but if you are in a caravan, campervan or motorhome don't come visit!". Just felt a little unprofessional in an otherwise outstanding guide.
Scotland the Best stands head and shoulders above its rival publications. Unlike the others, it does not simply state go here and see this, and go there and see that. If you are looking for a region by region guide, look elsewhere - or get both, but do not travel to Scotland on holiday without this book!
Peter Irvine's fantastic work is in a class of its own because he informs you of the places that he regards as best in each category. From my recent two-week trip to Scotland, I can confirm that most of his recommendations were highly credible. For instance, I visited some of the places that appeared under the headings "Famously Big Attractions" and "Other Unmissables", "Main Attractions" in Edinburgh, "Fantastic Beaches", "The Great Glens", "The Most Spectacular Waterfalls", "The Lochs We Love", "The Scenic Routes", and "The Best Castles". I was rarely disappointed with the recommendations. In fact, some of them were fantastic, such as the 4 top-rated glens, the 2 best-regarded lochs, 4 of the best scenic routes and 3 of the best castles.
There is much more in the book, such as places to eat and their price ranges, best places to stay, etc. Simply essential!
