Synopsis:

Americans make up the largest group of visitors traveling to Scotland from overseas, with a 27hare of Scotland's overseas tourist market. Tourism is Scotland's fourth largest employer, employing 193,000 or 80f the workforce– – it pays the wages of more people than the oil, gas, and whisky industries combined! The Edinburgh International Festival has become one of Europe's most prestigious art festivals and a prime reason for visitors to descend on this capital city.  When the festival-goers have returned home, the city's pace is more relaxed and its prices are lower, drawing tourists year-round. The Loch Lomand and Trossachs National Park receives over 5 million visitors per year. At 720 square miles, it is Britain's second-largest national park, encompassing some of Scotland's finest scenery and is a major tourism draw.

Synopsis:

Frommer’s Scotlandfeatures 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.
