An ideal pocket guide to over 350 plant species found throughout Scotland

Packed full of information, Collins Scottish Wild Flowers is the ideal guide for both visitors and residents of Scotland who wish to learn about the fascinating wealth of wild flowers that can be found there.

Each species is illustrated in full colour with a comprehensive description, plus the plant’s English, Latin and Gaelic names.

For ease of use, the plants are grouped together by the type of habitat in which they can be found, including Highlands, Lowlands and Coasts. Habitats are arranged from those most influenced by humans, progressing towards wilder and more remote areas.

The book includes a section with up-to-date details about places of interest and the best sites for finding some of the most attractive and special species of wild flowers in Scotland.
