Review:

Scotland's a country to see by car. With its lochs and hills, small towns and country inns, you lose a lot of autonomy by depending on public transportation. Frommer's guide presents 25 itineraries--all with precise directions, distances and drive times, sights along the way, history, nature, and family-oriented highlights, recommended walks, scenic side trips, and detailed, accurate route-planning maps.

Divvied up into four regions with five to seven tours each, the routes take one to three days to drive. The writing is informative, and the color photography is splendid, assisting with the task of choosing among the many fine trips. If you're after stony castles, hillside ambles, breathtaking mountain scenery, and watching a man hand-weave tartans on a loom, the "Doon the Watter" tour might appeal, while the "Queen of the South" tour features prehistoric chambered tombs, the Kircudbright Wildlife Park, and a rocky memorial to Robert the Bruce. If, on the other hand, jagged sea shores, old whaling centers, whisky distilleries, and stones with Pictish symbols are more to your fancy, "The Fishing Trail" might interest you more. Either way, Frommer's guide provides wonderful assistance in selecting then enjoying the sort of Scottish holiday you had in mind.
