THE LANDSCAPE OF SCOTLAND by SAMPSON LLOYD                                  
A photographic book that takes you right into the dramatic landscapes of Scotland.  Eight key regions are featured as the book explores the wild, rugged beauty of the Highlands over the seasons.  From the familiar vistas that those with a passion for Scotland will love to see again from another angle to views that will bring the sensation of all that the last wilderness in Europe has to offer.   At 160 pages with full colour pictures throughout this will make a fine addition to any Scottish collection of books.

The photographs and narratives include - The Landscape of the Gael; The Trossachs; Atholl and Breadalbane; Lorne; Mid-Argyll and Appin; Lochaber; The Great glen, Glen Affric and Strathglass; Morvern to Moidart and Arisaig; Kintail to Loch Broom; Sutherland and The Cairngorms, Strathspey and Badenoch. 
     The Landscape of Scotland

The book lets you look back at places you have seen or most usefully lets you see the beauty and grandeur of places you might visits on a trip to Scotland.  From the last remnants of the ancient Caledonian Forest over the mountains, lochs and rivers the book shows why no one can ever tire of a land that has so much variety.
