"In this marvelously entertaining and imaginative book, Ann Lindsay introduces a bewildering range of quirky, intriguing and amusing details about Scotland's past and present. Packed with information on curious places, bizarre happenings and perplexing happenings and oddities. Behind that 'dour' Scottish exterior, Ann Lindsay shows in this enjoyably serendipitous survey, there's a more offbeat Scotland just waiting to get out. And here, at last, it does: a quirky, eccentric country with a taste for the unpredictable and fun."
