Aimed at both nature lovers and at tourists visiting Scotland, this text describes all the species commonly found in the country. The book is divided into four habitat sections: around people; seaside; lowland and highlands. Each section has an introduction describing the habitat illustrated with full colour photographs, followed by a guide section describing all the flowers found in that habitat. Each flower is illustrated. The text is written to be accessible to beginners as well as informative. The Gaelic name for each flower is given, together with the English translation. A "Places to Go" section arranged by area gives details of over 35 sites selected to show some of the country's most attractive and special wild flowers in some of Scotland's most beautiful scenery.
