Scotland the Best! was first published in 1993. Since then its reputation has grown as the guide to all the very best Scotland has to offer. It has been widely praised in reviews, by awards from the Tourist industry and, above all, by delighted readers from all over the world. HarperCollins will be publishing the next edition, and it will be the best ever - expanded, updated and thoroughly revised. There will be new categories, from the best places to dive and surf to where to find the best cup of coffee, and newly discovered gems will be added to all the existing categories. Peter Irvine has reassessed every recommendation to see whether it is as excellent as ever or whether it is not quite what it was and no longer worthy of inclusion.This is the guide to help you experience all that is excellent about Scotland. Whether you live here or are visiting, why settle for the second-rate when you can be guided to so much that is superb? Peter Irvine's personal guide provides thousands of recommendations covering a multitude of topics including the best places to stay (whatever your budget), the best beaches, the best ice-cream, the best hill walks, the best bakers, the best spooky places, the best seafood, the best places to take kids, the best ceildhs, and so the list goes on. However well you know Scotland, Peter Irvine will guide you to something excitingly new.
