Summary

Summary

This pocket-sized reference provides up-to-date statistics and information about Scotland. Physical statistics include: the land; weather; flora; transport and tourism; religion; legal system; population; and local districts. A section on places to visit covers the country's museums and galleries, nature reserves and gardens, castles and military buildings and the sites of important battles, while a calendar shows the dates of musical and traditional festivals, and sporting fixtures. The lives of famous, and infamous Scots, both past and present are explored - from royalty and aristocrats to actors and comedians. Aiming to furnish the reader with everything he or she will ever need to know about Scotland, a wealth of miscellany looks at the ancient kingdoms, modern republics, and various media with a Scottish theme.
