I've no specific memories of reading this one as a child, but bits of it felt familiar--perhaps only because as a Nancy Drew book it can't help but be formulaic. I picked it up for the Scottishness of it, and the little pieces of information about Glasgow, Edinburgh, the Highlands, bagpiping, and kilt-wearing were probably the most fun for me. While I enjoyed Nancy Drews as a sprout, I find them harder to enjoy as an adult than many other books I read at about the same age, and this one is no exception. It's not a bad representation of the series (though the mystery is perhaps a tad less meaty than in some other installments), but overall I enjoyed it most for the nostalgia it stirred about reading these books as a kid.

Probably my favorite one, Nancy travels to Scotland and I think catches some sheep thieves. ( )
