Overview

The history of Scotland is like its landscape--full of peaks and valleys, of ruggedness and grandeur, of gentleness and calm splendor. Its story is inextricably linked with its larger neighbor England, but is completely individual. Although joined by the union of the crowns in the form of James VI of Scotland who became James I of England, there is no doubting Scotland's unique and special place in history. From Bannockburn to Braveheart, Bonnie Prince Charlie to Rabbie Burns, the Scots have proved to be a people whose character and ability have made their world influence disproportionate to the size of their country. This book looks at the many facts of Scotland from its Crown Jewels to its stunning geography and scenery.

This was a gift for my mother. She and my father visited Scotland in the 90's and she always wanted to go back, not much of a chance of that occurring now. When she opened the book she was elated to see it. She has sat for hours looking at the wonderful photos and reading the text. Very well done and thanks for giving my mother the best thing next to actually travelling back to Scotland!
