Harry Henniker's book covering the Scottish part of the National Cycle Network is the essential guide to the many routes to be explored. Integrated in colour throughout with clear, user-friendly maps and route trajectories, it provides cyclists with invaluable advice on what to take on particular rides, the best places to stay and the sights that must be seen.

The current NCN network in Scotland is considerably greater than that covered in the book - routes along the west Coast, the Great Glen and the islands are not described despite being included on the Sustrans map dated 2009. I'd also be concerned about relying on mileage, gradient and accommodation information, too (for instance, the distance from Carlisle to Gretna is a little over half that claimed by the author).
I think that the descriptions of places are impressionistic and could have benefited from being better researched or left out all together. Churlish I know, but a decent sub-editor might have at least added consistency with capitalisation of the map annotations.
This book may have been a labour of love for the author, but it's title and cover are misleading. It's also heavy - nearly 400gms or about a pound - if you're touring.
Conclusion- highly do not recommend.
