Description

Facsimile edition of the famous Black’s Picturesque Tourist Guide of Scotland originally published in 1840. The Black’s Guide to travel is the star of the television series ‘Grand Tours of Scotland’ as used by Paul Murton.

Starts with a description of Scotland, Edinburgh and Leith and the Environs of Edinburgh. The guide then describes Fourteen Tours of Scotland for the traveller, highlighting notable features the travellers may encounter. In the preface to the guide it states that ‘the author has contended himself with giving a plain and intelligible account of the scenery most worthy of the attention of strangers ‘

As well as the in-depth tours there are 21 detailed Itineraries and an index. There are also charts and scenic views from around Scotland at the time.
