I purchased 3 different books for an upcoming trip to Scotland. Lonely Planet by far is the best. The authors have obviously spent a great deal of time traveling the area and the read is pretty straight forward with a little humor thrown in as well. Just note, the kindle edition on iPad doesn't really let you zoom in to maps or photos but you can go to their website to download these.

For visitors to the United Kingdom who might be looking for a little outdoor elbow room, Scotland's rugged highlands and remote islands might be just the thing. The Cairngorms, the Great Glen, and the Inner and Outer Hebrides, among other locations, offer opportunities for solitude in a natural setting. Scotland also has on offer other attractions for visitors, including a variety of highland games and gatherings, plenty of castles in various states of repair or disrepair, and even a string of distilleries of famed Scotch whisky.

Lonely Planet's latest guide to Scotland's Highlands and Islands was published in January 2012, and thanks to the good work of its writing team, seems happily up to date. The guide includes a small selection of color photographs and a few maps, but its emphasis is on a concise travel narrative describing the many opportunities for touristing and recreation. The guide follows a geographic breakout by region, and includes lots of practical tips for traveling to and around often remote portions of the Highlands. Travelers who want to read ahead will find plenty of interesting information about hiking, golf, museums and good eating, and a surprising number of choices; recommended.

Used this gude on my last trip and it was priceless. Guided us to some terrific locations and out of the way places with good background on where we were visiting. Highly recommend if you are travelling to this wonderful country.

Format: Paperback
The Highlands' hub is Ft. William. Most travellers will pass through that small city. We found the lodging and eating reviews for Ft William to be sketchy and in one case, flat wrong. The "Grog and Gruel" is recommended for good food and cold ales. We found bad food and warm beer. The food was not just negligently prepared; it was doomed by indifference. The stake and ale pie, for example was common, salty canned beef stew with a frozen prefab crust. So, this crucial section of thr guide needs to be updated just two years after publication.

I also bought the kindle version for a few dollars more. It was very handy to have the links there.
