Scotland's landscape is wildly diverse, ranging from towering mountains reflected in mirror-like lochs to ancient castles and bustling city streets. This wonderful book provides historic, geographic and arts-based text alongside captivating images of everywhere from the Borders in the south to Orkney in the north. The desirable, chunky format makes this an excellent travel companion for discovering both tourist destinations and lesser-known idyllic sites.
Michael Kerrigan has written widely on both the history of art and literature. Recent books on the English tradition include Paul Nash: Masterpieces of Art. A longstanding interest in the mythic and mystic traditions has given rise to books including Celtic Legends and The Bible: A Dark History, and a chapter on ‘Inklings of Other Worlds, 1946–59’ in The Astounding Illustrated History of Fantasy & Horror. A regular contributor to the Times Literary Supplement, he lives with his family in Edinburgh.
