This was the least useful Lonely Planet I've purchased. It had more about the places to stay and to eat than it did about the sights and history. Since travel by bus/train is difficult in Scotland, more information of how to get around if you hired a car would have been useful.There were a few good tips, however the maps were hard to read if you were changing regions. It would have also benefited from some discussion of travel time between the different sights.

My criticism of this is not so much for its content, because I'm not really sure about that. By purchasing this, I discovered that travel guides do not work well on a Kindle. I have not been able to enjoy reading this because, by nature, a guide is about skipping around, looking quickly back and forth at information and on a Kindle I find that all but impossible. I am really sorry I didn't pay a couple dollars more and purchase the actual book. On Kindle it was a waste of money.

It is a very helpful book with lots and lots of information. For me I would have preferred a little more of the Sights and Activities and a little less on the Eating and Drinking and Shopping, but I'm sure some people will feel just the opposite.

Scotland is one of the great destinations in Europe for those who value outdoor recreation, solitude, beautiful scenery, and lots of above-ground history. This Lonely Planet guide to Scotland is a valuable planning and touristing aid. The book covers the various regions of Scotland, from the major cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh to the famed Highlands and the Great Glen, to the Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland Islands, and does so in a compact but information-packed format of just under 500 pages.

The guide opens with a highly readable introductory section, to allow the first time visitor to size the possibilities. The following chapters discuss Scotland by region, addressing things to see and do, where to stay, and where to eat. Concluding chapters touch on Scotland's unique culture and on some very practical survival tips, including its famously variable weather. The book has a decent selection of photographs and maps, and lots of interesting asides on unique sights and scenery. The coverage is not as complete as some other guides, but should be more than sufficient to plan a worthwhile visit or extended vacation.

First time visitors should know that planning ahead is very worthwhile; Scotland's tourist infrastructure is fairly thin on the ground north of Edinburgh and Glasgow; hotel and inns tend to fill up fast during the summer season, or in the event of a festival or highland games celebration. Planning ahead will also allow the visitor to make connections between planes, trains, automobiles and ferries, especially in northern Scotland. Recommended.

As Rick Steves (I think) said, "Always take one actual tour guide" on a trip. Too awkward to find everything online. This was the book for us. During a one-month road trip throughout the northern half of Scotland, we used it extensively. It was also very useful as we were planning our trip.

I was really disappointed in this travel guide. I have bought Lonely Planet before for China ans Southeast Asia and it worked really well but this was shockingly bad. We based our week long tour of Scotland on this book's recommendations and were really thrown off when we would drive through small quaint towns that the book said didn't have anywhere to eat or explore and then find it was absolutely not the case! Or we would press on through said small towns and go to the recommended place and find it sorely lacking. I feel they copped out and just wrote reviews for places that paid them off. Some of the Castles weren't even in there either.

We just returned from a 10-day trip to Scotland. This book (along with Michelin Map, Scotland 501) proved to be an excellent resource for our trip. It's set up so you can use it as a quick reference resource or for in-depth planning (as we did). Lots of helpful tips and recommendations. We stayed in B&B's and enjoyed meals at restaurants the book recommended and were not disappointed. All travelers, from budget traveler to luxury traveler, will find tips and recommendations tailored to their needs. The book also adds some historical context along the way with more detail toward the end. The authors also include some humorous writing to keep things interesting. Well done!
Scotland is a third of the land area of the United Kingdom, but with only five million people, it contains much open space and wild country. The hardy visitor can find many opportunities for outdoor recreation, whether trekking the Cairngorms or bagging the peaks known as Munro's, fishing for wild salmon or kayaking its lakes and rivers. Scotland has also its fair share of castles, museums and other sights, and some of the best golfing in the world. What's a visitor to do with so many choices?

This Lonely Planet Guide to Scotland provides a very decent survey of Scotland and its offerings in under 500 pages, a compact format easily carried. The book opens with an introduction to Scotland, followed by chapters on the two big cities, Edinburgh and Glasgow. The following chapters explore Scotland by geographic area. The entries are pithy and opinionated, with a seasoning of pictures, maps and diagrams. There is a tear-out map of Edinburgh in the back, behind a section on practicalities. For the first time visitor, there is plenty of information to plan a good visit. Well recommended to that audience.

And yes, that is the Hogwarts Train, also known as the Jacobite steam train in western Scotland.
