Scotland's authentic style is revealed here in country houses, traditions and culture, and in images including a tiled Edwardian kitchen at Ardkinglas; a bright, richly decorated ceiling inside a thick-walled Jacobean tower house; a lush garden carpeted with bluebells; and the comfort of well-stuffed furniture in living rooms and libraries. Many of the treasures of Scottish life are also explored, in sections on painted ceilings, romantic painting, Harris Tweed, tartans, pottery, dovecots, trout and salmon fishing, deerstalking and grouse shooting. This welcoming civility is set against the splendours of the landscape, with windswept hills, craggy coastlines and lakes veiled in mist. A directory lists houses and gardens open to the public, as well as island tours, inns, hotels and antique shows - even where to buy armour.

From the Inside Flap:

ok on Scotland to capture not only the beauty of its spectacular landscape and architecture but also to tell about the history, traditions, and culture from the perspective of a witty, knowledgeable insider. Through lush gardens, sweeping landscapes, and 15 of Scotland's less well known houses, Scottish Country reveals an identifiably Scottish style. Illustrations.
