Hidden Scotland - New Edition

Did you know that trains used to travel by sail across the Angus countryside, that Scotland produced a Queen of Morocco, saw the death of Queen Guinevere and elected a Queen of the island of Handa?

In this marvellously entertaining and informative book, Ann Lindsay introduces a huge range of quirky, intriguing and amusing details about Scotland’s past and present. Some of what she reveals is verifiable by fact, some shrouded in mystery and superstition. Packed with infor-mation on curious places, bizarre happenings and perplexing oddities, Hidden Scotland will surprise even the most erudite student of Scottish culture. It includes instructions on how to get to all the places mentioned in the book, making it an indispensable companion to those keen to explore the more alternative destinations on Scotland’s tourist trail.

Ann Lindsay is the author of a number of bestselling books, including The Dried Flower Garden (Batsford) and Seeds Blood and Beauty: Scottish Plant Explorers (Birlinn). She has also contributed over to the years to a wide range of newspapers and magazines, including Sunday Herald, Sunday Post, Country Life and the Scots Magazine.
