    DescriptionH. V. Morton's enduringly popular and engaging travels through Scotland, first published in 1928. Seeking to close a travel-writing gap of over a hundred years, H. V. Morton goes in search of Scotland, a land to which he is a complete stranger. The result is a characteristically engaging adventure in a landscape at turns "enchanted" and "without mercy." Amongst many entertaining encounters, he describes a "sincere Scottish breakfast" served beneath a portrait of Queen Victoria, sings Jacobite rebel songs late into the night at a hotel in Fort Augustus, and comes across "the most grotesque signpost in the British Isles": "The Village of Glencoe, Scene of The Famous Massacre, Teas and Refreshments, Tobacco and Cigarettes." Anecdotal, leisurely, full of character and event, insight, and opinion, this is travel writing of the very highest order.
