The Best of Britain: Edinburgh and East Coast Scotland: Accessible, contemporary guides by local authors (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Every year, more and more people are choosing to snub the long-haul flights and rigorous security checks and holiday in Britain. Edinburgh has been voted favourite UK city for eight years running by the Guardian and Observer and this book not only covers the capital's stylish attractions, but also everything around, from the up and coming Kingdom of Fife, to Perthshire, East Lothian and the Scottish Borders, all written by a local writer who knows the area like the back of her hand. The Best of Britain series uniquely brings together local knowledge of the area and expert advice, to make sure you get the most out of your visit. The guide includes: - The best attractions for young couples, families and groups of friends - Recommendations from local characters and celebrities - Where to find fresh organic and local produce and tucked-away farm shops and delis - Recommended places to eat out - from quirky cafes to Michelin-starred restaurants - Wet-weather options - for when the unpredictable British weather lets you down - Great things to do with children (and where to go to get away from them!) - The best places to stay - from cosy cottages to boutique hotels - Local legends, festivals and pubs
