Very interesting in describing plant lore, but not did not tell you how to use the herbs. That is a different subject of course, but I did not think of that when I ordered the book. It was however a good and comprihensive book if you are interested in Scottish plant lore.

A very useful descritpion of plants with practical applications. Tess, quite rightly, notes that medicinal and magical beliefs are difficult to separate and the result is a series of entries from evidence-based research to warding off fairies. Fascinating and charming. A must for Scotland-based Palaeoquest students.

Interesting and detailed about individual plants. But could do with more detailed pictures or photographs for better identification of plants.

Not really a Herbal as such but a truly fascinating book following all the folk lore and uses of our Scottish Herbs.

It's an ok book and as does contain some Scotland-specific info but there are a lot more comprehensive herbals out there if you want information organised by each plant. For Scottish uses I find Flora Celtica a lot more superior and well worth the extra pennies.
