Lochs of Scotland: The comprehensive guide to Scotland's most fabulous inland and sea lochs (Paperback)
There are at least 31,460 freshwater lochs in Scotland, and hundreds of sea lochs. This stunning book showcases more than 50 of the most popular, interesting and beautiful, and is a perfect guide for anyone visiting or exploring Scotland, or wanting to find out about these iconic and breathtaking locations, sometimes sitting by spectacular coast and other times nestled in between towering mountains.
Take in the classics such as Loch Ness and Loch Lomond, then meander round Loch Fyne (where red squirrels were first reintroduced to Scotland in 1847), the long Loch Long (20km and the straightest in Scotland), the fjord-like Loch Goil, and Scotland's oldest inhabited castle at Loch Sween. Discover the stunning Loch Awe (with its less attractive legend of the goddess who created it being transformed into an immortal hag), Loch Linnhe (bordered by the stunning railway line used for the filming of Harry Potter's Hogwart's Express) and Loch Nevis (Europe's deepest sea loch). This book is absolutely crammed with intriguing and surprising information.
Packed with maps and information on local facilities, this book is the perfect guide for walkers, boaters and anyone wanting to know more about these iconic and breathtaking locations. Each chapter is beautifully illustrated with remarkable colour photography, as well as absorbing text on the landscape, wildlife and history.
