Description
Found mainly in the Highlands, the hundreds of freshwater lochs in Scotland are among the most unspoiled and beautiful destinations in Britain. Shaped millions of years ago by the glacial ice sheets that once covered the northern part of the isles, their waters are rich in marine life and their shores are abundant with flora and fauna. This book is a photographic tour of more than 30 lochs, describing their historical background and natural history, with details on travel, walks, cycle rides, boat trips, fishing, and water sports. The book also delves into the fascinating stories surrounding these lochs, from remote Loch Coruisk, set in the Black Cuillins of Skye, to the prison of Mary, Queen of Scots, in the middle of Loch Leven, from the sinister depths of Loch Morar to the famous monster of Loch Ness.

"Beautifully illustrated, this is first a book for browsing: [Julian] Holland's text is full of (often serendipitous) interest on everything from geology to myth."Scotsman
