Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Within these pages, you’ll find bucolic Highland panoramas dotted with sheep and portraits of castles—some of which, [author, Gracie] concedes, are “so much the better” for existing in a state of “romantic ruin.” But there’s a sense of balance at work: Edinburgh may be showcased on one page as a city paved with antiquated cobblestones while on the next it’s revealed as a contemporary capital—animated by its vibrant citizens.” ~Metrosource
