Publisher Description

At the age of twenty-one, John Prebble set out to ‘discover’ Scotland, and just as Scott had been enthralled by this fiercely distinctive land, so Prebble’s imagination was similarly enchanted and challenged.

The Lion in the North and Culloden, amongst others, are part of that lifelong fascination but John Prebble’s Scotland is a direct result of the re-tracing of earlier steps, drawing upon a rich store of social history, anecdote, folklore and literature to conduct the reader through the Highlands, Isles and Borders.
