How this guide is laid out
The first 100 pages are used to give an overview of the natural environment of the North Highlands as well as the archaelogy, history and culture.
The following Gazetteer sections discuss Caithness, East Sutherland, Easter Ross, Black Isle, Wester Ross, West Sutherland, and North Sutherland in great detail. Each area is broken up into snippets, such as John o'Groats to Wick or Plockton & Loch Carron. Within these snippets, text and photographs build a picture of the area, with historical photos thrown in for comparison. Although not exactly itineraries, as no driving directions, distances or times are provided, sections of mapping are given to help with navigation and the sights are listed in geographical order. So with the aid of an additional map or atlas, you could easily plan a driving route visiting the sights that interest you most.
At the back of the book is information on how to get to the Scottish Highlands by plane, public transport, car or motorhome. There is also some information on ferries running from the North Highland ports. There are six pages of hotel and guesthouse listings, plus restaurants and contact information and websites for several of the attractions discussed in the guide.
A small section on Orkney, the author's birthplace, follows and then a bibliography and suggested background reading and maps to further enhance your discovery of Scotland and the Highlands. Finally, there is an index to help you navigate the guide. On the back cover is an overview map of the North Highlands.
