Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0906362768, Paperback)

Scotland has a rich prehistory stretching from Neolithic times through the Bronze and Iron Ages. She has islands from the magnificent Orkneys and Shetlands to the Outer Hebrides and the Uists, the Isle of Skye and the Inner Hebrides. Each one is renowned for its ancient sanctity. Scotland was home to many different cultures including the Norse, Picts and Celts. She has a particularly unique and stunning landscape with her holy mountains, spectacular lochs and sacred trees. The Highlands with their Pictish settlements and carved standing stones offer yet another kind of awe-inspiring beauty. Fairy folklore, poets and bards, Arthurian and Merlin related sites, Celtic Christian foundations and their Saints are all to be found in this land. This book not only takes the reader on a magical journey into Scotland's historical, cultural, literary and spiritual past, but also offers directions to all the areas regarded by Scots themselves as of special importance, what they mean and why.
