Content: Perthshire (or Perth & Kinross as it is officially known these days) is a substantial part of central Scotland, so it now fills two books in this series, the other being Picturing Scotland: The City of Perth. This companion volume picks up where The City of Perth ends and explores the upland areas to the west and north. Highland Perthshire covers three great straths which run roughly east to west: Strath Earn, the most southerly, Strath Tay, where Ben Lawers, Scotland's tenth-highest peak, towers over the expanse of Loch Tay and the northernmost, Strath Tummel, which extends right up to Loch Rannoch. It is known as 'Big Tree Country', being home to record-breaking examples such as the sole survivor from Shakespeare’s 'Birnam Wood' and the oldest living thing in Europe, if not the planet! It contains over 100 pictures.

Market: Books in this series are bought by visitors and locals alike to give as gifts or to keep for their own enjoyment. They are also helpful to those planning a visit as the book leads the reader on a geographical tour of the area. To visitors, they are a great reminder of a visit, while local people buy them to send to friends and family to show off where they live.
