Coastal Scotland: Celebrating the History, Heritage and Wildlife of Scottish Shores
Stuart Fisher, bestselling author of the similarly comprehensive Canals of Britain, visits all the places of interest along the entire coastline of Scotland: from rugged countryside edging the Highlands to modern cities, via firths and sea lochs, exploring history and heritage, striking architecture and dramatic engineering, wildlife, wonderful flora and fauna, art and literature.
His journey takes him from industrial hubs to small villages and fishing communities, providing a keen insight into what makes each stretch of Scotland's shoreline unique and special. Evocative and often dramatic colour photographs help capture the great variety of the coast, and maps, book covers, stamps and local artefacts help convey the character of each area.
This comprehensive and absorbing survey is a treasure trove of interest and knowledge for walkers, cyclists, boaters, holidaymakers and indeed anyone with an interest in coastal Scotland.
