Black's Picturesque Tourist of Scotland
By

Rating
Black's Picturesque Tourist of Scotland will provide you with maps that pass for art, descriptions that pass for poetry and detail that could pass for the most meticulous historic record. It will enable you to travel through Scotland on the shoulder of an urbane 19th century traveller and encounter the triumphs, trials and tall tales that flowed throughout Scotland in the 1800s. Whilst this tome is likely to be of interest to historians, it would also have many insights to offer the present day traveller who seeks a sense of context for their exploration of Scotland. The historically minded reader will relish the opportunity to see what the viewpoint of an educated traveller might have been on the Battle of Culloden, be swallowed up by the mysteries of Scotland's beautiful lochs and, on the more domestic side, find out where a good inn and malt liquor could be found at a fair price and where one would have been better off to abandon all hope and settle for the local brew. Written from the perspective of a 19th century author hoping to enrich contemporary readers this book will tell you everything a tourist visiting Scotland could hope to know. When to jostle for a place at the window on the Caledonian railway, which stately homes marble staircase is worth the journey to visit and which road to take to the legendary poet Burns' cottage; all this and more lies within these pages and waits to enthral the reader. Rarely can a book convey such a sense of living history alongside such a prodigious amount of quantified but personal information about the period.
