Scotland has always been a popular destination with American visitors, who are attracted by the dramatic scenery, warm hospitality, the finest malt whiskies, and world-renowned golf courses. Many also come to trace ancestors and to investigate the history and traditions of the clans. Information on all this and more can be found in this 7th edition of the Cadogan guide to Scotland. The author guides readers on a tour through Scotland region by region, taking in ghost-spotting at Glamis Castle, a stroll in the celestial gardens at Finlaystone, a chilly swim in the waters of Loch Ness, and a visit to the hill forts and stone circles of Perthshire. Fully revised and updated, the guide includes color photographs, comprehensive maps, travel information and the most up-to-the-minute listings, which will help readers choose between the splendor of Gleneagles and the warmth of a cozy bed and breakfast for a genuine local experience.
