Walk Scotland is a guidebook with a difference as Bruce Sandison takes the reader on 125 of his favourite walks - from the Shetland Isles to the Borders, including three excursions in the land of Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland - combining practical information of indigenous flora and fauna with local history and the author's personal knowledge of these routes in his beloved native land. Each walk is a complete story in itself. Sandison recounts his own experiences during a lifetime spent exploring Scotland's countryside: a first kiss among the trees of the 'T' Woods at Swanston, near Edinburgh; discovering Skara Brae in Orkney, before the tourists. His sense of humour is never far behind as he remembers those who walked these ways in days gone by: Mary, Queen of Scots, dashing from Jedburgh to Hermitage Castle to comfort her lover, incurring the wrath of Presbyterian Scotland for doing so; and Bonnie Prince Charlie holding 'court' behind Ben Corridale on South Uist. Including walks to suit all standards of fitness, this book is beautifully illustrated with colour photographs. Ordnance Survey grid references are noted for routes, start- and finishing-points and key markers along the way. At once a practical guide and an evocative account of the history permeating these stunning landscapes, Walk Scotland is a must for all would-be walkers and lovers of the Scottish countryside.
