Hidden Scotland


ScotlandHidden Scotland

Whenever my husband and I go traveling we like to do a little bit of research before we go. This is especially true if we are going to a destination we have not been to before.
Research is often done by looking at things on Pinterest and reading books. My favorite way is reading travel books. There is something special about looking at the beautiful pictures and skimming over the author’s words that just really brings new vacation places to life.

One of our upcoming trips will be to Scotland. This beautiful place is much more than Edinburgh Castle and the Loch Ness Monster. We want to know more so I went looking for information as I usually do. This is what I found.

In Lauren McCallum’s new book,  “Hidden Scotland”, the author shows readers parts of Scotland that are often well off the tourist path. In the book you will learn about impressive manors, places for vintage finds, enchanting woodlands, two wheeled adventures, foodies’ choices and yes even whisky distilleries. Every turn of the page you will discover Hidden Scotland in word and pictures. Each entry gives a description of the area, how to get there and many give a bit of history about these off the beaten trail Hidden gems of Scotland.
