Scotland is really half a dozen diverse and colourful countries in one; and its people are amongst the most ancient, proud and emphatic in the world. a land famous for its natural beauty, in the forefront of technological development, it can also boast some of the best managed farming lands on earth; whole provinces, rich in small industries, market towns, peaceful resorts, modern development and ancient churches, abbeys, castles; a coastline unrivalled in its dramatic contrasts of islands, cliffs, rocks and splendid sands, dotted with innumerable fishing villages; cities of great character and pride, not so large as to have lost their individuality; burghs that were old when the Conqueror came to England.

And this book is concerned to give some glimpse of the face, the heart and the life of the land of the Scots today.
