Frommer’s Scotland features gorgeous color photos of the quaint villages, misty moors, and offshore islands that await you. It’s a highly personal guide that’s fun to read and even more fun to use on the road—and it’s much more complete and in-depth than its major competitors.

You’ll find complete details on lovely small towns, world-class golf courses, superb fishing, country pubs, whiskey distilleries, natural wonders, castles, literary landmarks, mysterious ancient ruins, and Edinburgh’s vibrant cultural scene.

About the author (2009)

New York City resident Darwin Porter, himself an unrepentant enfant terrible, moved freely, both in New York and in Key West, for many years within the entourages of this lavender trio, with personal, legal, and journalistic links to all three of its members in complicated patterns that evoke a gothic novel. Now he's written a book about it--a publishing event that reveals the competitive frenzy of a bitchy but brilliant trio whose literary legacies changed the cultural landscapes of America forever.
