The first guide­book to weave together the cul­tural, his­tor­i­cal and spir­i­tual aspects of this fas­ci­nat­ing coun­try, it will enhance the expe­ri­ence of the arm­chair trav­eller as well as any pil­grim to the ancient mag­i­cal land of Scotland.

Scot­land has a rich pre­his­tory stretch­ing from Neolithic times through the Bronze and Iron Ages. She has islands from the mag­nif­i­cent Orkneys and Shet­lands to the Outer Hebrides and the Uists, the Isle of Skye and the Inner Hebrides. Each one is renowned for its ancient sanc­tity. Scot­land was home to many dif­fer­ent cul­tures includ­ing the Norse, Picts and Celts. She has a par­tic­u­larly unique and stun­ning land­scape with holy moun­tains, spec­tac­u­lar lochs and sacred trees. The High­lands with their Pic­tish set­tle­ments and carved stand­ing stones offer yet another kind of awe-inspiring beauty. Fairy folk­lore, poets and bards, Arthurian and Mer­lin related sites, Celtic Chris­t­ian foun­da­tions and their Saints are all to be found in this land.

This guide­book not only takes the reader on an inspir­ing jour­ney of dis­cov­ery into Scotland’s past, but, also, offers direc­tions to places regarded by Scots them­selves of spe­cial impor­tance, what they mean and their rel­e­vance today.
