The Picturing Scotland Series: a book for every part of Scotland

Colin and Eithne Nutt are the founders of Ness Publishing, the core business of which is the Picturing Scotland series of photographic books. There is a book for every part of Scotland, making it the only series of such books that covers the whole of the country. Photography for the series began in 2007 with the first four books publishing in 2008. Since 2007 the task of photographing Scotland from end to end has resulted in an archive of around 30,000 images - and counting! As well as the most classic and iconic views Scotland has to offer, many of its more hidden gems are revealed within the pages of these books. We hope this will encourage people to explore Scotland in greater depth.

Currently there are 33 books in the Picturing Scotland series, 28 of them regional, while others are about Scottish themes such as the country's distilleries, its mountains and its wildlife. Orkney in Wartime (2016) is a new theme and introduces a more historical dimension to the series.
