I live there so I'm biased but the book in itself is fine but particularly for the West Highlands the book does not emphasise enough the midgies and the rain. In Argyll it can rain, in forms varying from torrential to light drizzle for weeks at a time at any time of year and the midgies have to be experienced to be believed. Travelling around without a car is a challenge. A decent guide to a wonderful place to live, this edition is 2006 and lots of things have changed - restaurants closed and opened, walking routes fallen off hillsides etc, so always check.
