    Arrived today, already identified my next hit list of locations to visit. Fantastic reference source with loads of valuable information. Great photography. It is also unique in that it gives tips where to shoot from for those who are either looking to get the postcard shot or who dont have time to explore and need to fast track their visit a bit. A great book.

    What a fantastic publication !! This will be an invaluable resource for my Spring visit to Scotland. Dougie Cunningham’s images are both stunning and inspiring.

    The detail and coverage are first class – surely the most comprehensive photo location guidebook ever produced for Scotland.

    So glad I bought the advanced copy. Massive thanks to Mick and Stuart for producing yet another priceless guidebook to add to my collection.

    Book arrived today and having had a quick browse through it certainly is a fantastic piece of work. If you have any interest in landscape photography and Scotland in particular then this book will prove to be invaluable, it is jam packed with places to visit and the photos are stunning. So if you are planning to visit Scotland then take this book with you and hopefully you should get some great images.

    Just back from a tour of Skye and this book is fantastic to have for reference and is a great starting point for what’s worth a visit. Location data was accurate and post codes work well on sat nav. Definitely worth buying for a trip around Scotland

    Fantastic book! Dougie has created an indispensable guide to some of the finest views that Scotland has to offer. It really does illustrate that there are still some wild and beautiful places left to explore. I just wish I had picked it up sooner! Well done to Dougie and the team at Fotovue for creating such an impressive book.

    Bought in time for my 50th birthday trip to Scotland. Can’t recommend these books enough, I have 8 in total, so interesting for photographers and non photographers.

    I bought this book to help plan day trips whilst on holiday in the Trossachs National Park. It is a fantastic resource, it really added value to our holiday and also serves to whet our appetite for more exploration in Scotland. The quality of the book, both visually and the detailed information contained is superb!
