Format: Flexibound
Fantastic book if you are thinking of visiting Scotland but are not sure which parts of this beautiful country to visit. Maps and drawings are great; cutways of castles and homes very interesting; sections on history and culture excellent. The book divides Scotland into geographical regions, describing the climate and terrain of each, the highlights of the area, sites to see; even walking or touring maps to follow. Perfect for an overview of the country as a whole, and if you are planning to travel there, use this book to narrow down the parts of the country you want to visit and then get more specific information on them.
Hard to believe there is this much good information in a 200 page book. A classic Eyewitness Travel Guide.

This compact book is a great first overveiw of Scotland. The color photographs are very illustrative of such things as wildlife, food, whiskey distilleries, and types of castles. The 3-D cutaways of important castles and homes are extremely well done. Although I have lived in Scotland and attended University there, I learned much that I did not know before. The advice on places to visit and places to hike was well planned and we were never disappointed when we followed it. For example, Glen Nevis is a prettier hike than up Ben Nevis (and warmer).

In planning a Scotland trip, I needed at least one resource to show me all of my options in pictures. The Eyewitness has some great photographs, as well as overviews on the culture, geography, etc. I used it as a start for my planning, but will not be taking it with me. This is not the book to purchase for lodging and transportation planning. But it served my purposes well, and seeing many of the sites and their locations helped me plan our itinerary.
Along with a book like this, I recommend purchasing an extensive travel guide with lodging and transportation options (Let's Go and others). Also, internet research can be a great help, as can a detailed road atlas.

The DK Eyewitness Guide to Scotland is a superb one book resource for planning a vacation in Scotland. DK's combination of pictures, maps, facts, and commentary allow the visitor to find not only the major tourist attractions but also the places and events off the beaten path that are often even more worthwhile. The Eyewitness guide includes a nice history of Scotland as well as practical information on travel, custons, money, safety, and climate, as well as tips on food and uniquely Scottish souvenirs. The cut-away sketches and diagrams of castles and historical sites increase the visitor's appreciation of the place. The guide provides some useful tips on places to hike. This reviewer and his wife found this guide, supplemented by local roadmaps, entirely adequate to plan and enjoy two weeks in the Scottish Highlands. This guide is highly recommended to the traveler planning a vacation in Scotland.

Scotland isn't just hills and glens, whiskey tours and giant tartan tourist trap. This guide book will introduce readers to the ``reel'' scotland, where the east coast is revealed in all its craggy glory, dotted with castles and sheer cliffs plunging into the north sea, while the gulf stream buffets the west coast, leaving palm trees and tropical plants. The book takes on the nation's bloody history and even delights in the food, making haggis sound deliciously tempting.

Format: Flexibound
Scotland is a very diverse place and this travel guide does an excellent job of capturing all of the regions. It lays things out clearly and lets you plan a visit that encompasses all of Scotland or lets you really get down and focus on one region over another. It is very hard to find a good Scotland guide (that is not tied to a guide about Great Britain) and Eyewitness does the job. Highly recommend.

I would recommend Scotland the Best! The one true guide first, but this was also good to review for the history, and the pictures before I arrived. It also helps to prepare you for the money, road signs, airports; things you will need to know if traveling abroad for the first time. Once I was there, I rarely looked at this book, but I would recommend this to prepare if you don't know the area at all. It is a good starter book.

As always, this Eyewitness guide provides lots of beautiful pictures and basic information. If you just want to preview the country before visiting it's great. If you are going on your own, I'd suggest a guide with more detailed information.
