Picturing Scotland: Caithness & Sutherland

Content: A photographic journey around the historic counties of Caithness and Sutherland that aims to capture their differing characters and illustrate the principal landmarks and places of interest. The book's coverage begins in Dornoch and then travels clockwise around the region, heading north-west across Sutherland over to its western coast, then weaving hither and thither up to the far north, thence into Caithness, home of the most northerly point on the Scottish mainland, and back down the east coast. Concise accompanying text provides a running commentary to the pictures. Illustrated with 100 colour photographs, most of which have been taken especially for this purpose.
