Content: Lanarkshire is the only part of Scotland that has two World Heritage sites, namely New Lanark and the Antonine Wall (shared with neighbouring Falkirk). These two sites are therefore quite thoroughly illustrated in the book, but by no means do they monopolise the scenic delights of the area. Another winning card about Lanarkshire is the huge variety of terrain it encompasses, from its share of the Southern Uplands through the rolling agricultural landscape of Clydesdale, to urban images in the north. The book follows this south-to-north arrangement from the source of the Clyde, visiting all the major points of interest on the way and contains a total of 107 photographs.

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.
