About this book

This is the first comprehensive guide to Scotland since the 19th century, edited by the Director of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society.
This authoritative, comprehensive gazetteer includes more than 8,000 entries on cities, towns and villages, mountains, lochs and rivers, visitor attractions and monuments throughout the nation. Each entry places its subject in an appropriate historical, geological or environmental context, providing essential information of interest to a wide range of potential users. Street plans are provided for over 100 main towns and cities, as are maps of each administrative area, and 150 photographs of notable landmarks are spread throughout the book. All entries are cross-referenced to a full-colour atlas, providing a wealth of extra cartographic information.
