Highways to the Highlands (Jul)

Highways to the Highlands (Jul)

Description:

For centuries tourists and other travellers have been travelling north to the Highlands of Scotland. This book follows the main thoroughfares north, using vintage and contemporary images to illustrate how they and the people using them have changed over time. The book starts as many visitors to Scotland have done over the years, by following the Great North Road from Edinburgh to Inverness. The reader continues north from the Highland capital by the east coast, thus joining the highly popular North Coast 500 tourist route going around the North of Scotland from east to west. The return journey south follows the spectacular west coast route all the way to Glasgow. Many of the old picture postcards and other images feature the beautiful scenery and way of life of the people of the Highlands. Illustrating the changes that came about during the twentieth-century transport revolution, this is an affectionate lavishly illustrated tribute to how travel around the Highlands has changed over time.
