Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Even by Scottish standards, the legendary Highlands are off the beaten path, requiring a little extra effort to reach, but rewarding the persistent traveler with magnificent natural scenery (weather permitting) and more than a few locations of historical interest. This 2011 edition is the latest version of the Rough Guide to the Scottish Highlands & Islands.

The Highlands and Islands are located north of Glasgow and Edinburgh, and west of Aberdeen, which with Inverness are the principal entry points into the region. It is a surprisingly large area with few major population centers and a thin transportation and hospitality infrastructure. The elbow room and the opportunity to wander are a magnet for many visitors, but planning ahead is recommended, especially to reach some of the remoter islands.

This guide is divided by geographic area: the southeast coast of Argyll, the Central Highlands including the Cairngorms, the Great Glen including Loch Ness, sparsely populated Northern Scotland, Skye, the Western Isles, Orkney, and the Shetlands. Each section discusses items of interest such as castles, lochs, mountain walking, whisky distilleries, museums, and highland games. The sections include maps and graphics of the few towns, along with information on how to get there and where to eat and to stay. This edition also includes lots of websites and a healthy if limited selection of color photographs. There are practical hints on when to go to avoid school holidays and to minimize the impact of the highly variable weather.

This reviewer's favorite area is the vast Cairngorms National Park, set in the rugged Grampian Mountains but easily explored by day trips from any of several pleasant small towns such as Braemar.

I wanted specific information about some of the islands and this book has met my needs very well. It's laid out nicely and is easy to follow.

An extremely useful and easy to use guide. The more I used it, the more rewarding it was. Useful in trip planning, on the road and afterwards in many ways. Worth the money.

This book contained a wealth of information about the Highlands. I had only planned to be there for a week, but this book (along with actually being there in Scotland) made me want to stay there so much longer.

Highly recommended for an extended stay up in the Highlands.
