 About the Book 

Confirming that a dash of truth, a splash of history, and a good deal of manufacturing and manipulation can positively affect tourism, this book shows how the Scots have successfully promoted their land as one of heather, kilts, and whisky. Both the current and past importance of tourism to the country over the last 200 years is explored. Topics include vast trains nearly a mile long winding their way slowly to the Highlands, skinny dippers from the city scandalizing the matrons of Portobello, drunken daytrippers, and the newly discovered thrill of the Scottish holiday resorts as wedding destinations.
