For a thinly populated mountainous country on the fringe of Europe, Scotland casts a disproportionately large spell on the world. Its mix of great cities, popular festivals, historic golf courses and breathtaking countryside has long proved an enduring favourite with visitors. Ranging from the heritage of Edinburgh and the art galleries of Glasgow to the wild landscape of its lochs and highlands, Scotland's treasures never fail to surprise and thrill. The Globetrotter Travel Guide to Scotland introduces the reader to the country's history, people, culture, wildlife and economy and then focuses on the really worthwhile sights and places of interest to visit. The concise, user-friendly text is packed with travel tips, information panels, full-colour photographs, maps and suggested excursions, enabling the visitor to make the most of the time available.

According to traditional interpretations, the Reformations in England and Scotland had little in common: their timing, implementation, and very character marked them out as separate events. This book challenges the accepted view by demonstrating that the processes of reform in the two countries were, in fact, thoroughly intertwined.

If there is ocht in Scotland that's worth ha'en / There is nae distance to which it's unattached – Hugh MacDiarmidA realignment of Scottish literary studies is long overdue. The present volume counters the relative neglect of comparative literature in Scotland by exploring the fortunes of Scottish writing in mainland Europe, and, conversely, the engagement of Scottish literary intellectuals with European texts. Most of the contributions draw on the onlineBibliography of Scottish Literature in Translation. Together they demonstrate the richness of the creative dialogue, not only between writers, but also between musicians and visual artists when they turn their attention to literature.The contributors to this volume cover most of Europe, including the German-speaking countries, Scandinavia, France, Catalonia, Portugal, Italy, the Balkans, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Russia. All Scotland's major literary languages – Gaelic, Scots, English and Latin – are featured in a continent-wide labyrinth that will repay further exploration.
