    This book definitely gives some insight into the décor and interiors of various homes in Scotland but it barely touches the surface and is not as informative as I had anticipated. The subject matter covers quite a few styles of homes in various settings that range from grand to simple and the photos are quite enjoyable to look at (the fact that the book was published in 1987 should be considered as some of the photos are a little "dark"). In my opinion, it was a worthwhile read that provided a couple hours of quiet and enjoyable entertainment on a wet and chilly afternoon and it has whetted my appetite for more literature on the history and interior décor of Scottish homes.....and there is precious little of this literature available at a reasonable price here in the States!

    Arrived in a timely manner. Condition was much better than expected. Very satisfied with this seller. The book is full of interesting locations and great insights to Scottish life.

    This lovely picture book shows interiors and views from twenty-eight of the inhabited houses/castles in Scotland. Gorgeous furnishings and architecture from centuries past are still in use and well cared for. I enjoyed the short, historical notes and personal histories of the residents. There was one jarring discontinuity: a new (1977) house built and furnished as a modern country house complete with modern architecture and furnishings. Included in this book are pictures of Glamis Castle in Angus, Blairquhan in Ayrshire, Hill House in Helensburgh, Blair Castle in Blair Atholl, Traquair House in Innerleithen, Ardgowan House near the Firth of Clyde, Glentruim House in Badenoch, the estate of Mellerstain, Thirlestane Castle near Lauder, Newhailes House, Manderston in Berwickshire, Fordel Castle in Fife, a new modern house designed by James Morris near the Lothians, the "poet's garden" of Little Sparta in the Lanarkshire Hills, the house of Keith Schellenberg on the Island of Eigg, Craighall-Ratray above the River Ericht, Pitcullo Keep in the north-east of Fife, Bardrochat in the south-west corner of Ayrshire, Kinveachy Lodge near Boat of Garten, a Highland smithy converted to a one-story home, a mini-mansion on Tweedale lands, Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfriesshire, and also the city homes of six Scots in Edinburgh and Glasgow: William Mowat Thompson - owner of the Theatre School of Dance and Drama in Edinburgh, Ken McCulloch - restaurateur and hotel-owner in Glasgow, Susie Raeburn - an advocate in the Law Courts in Edinburgh, Broderick Haldane - international society photographer, Andrew McIntosh Patrick - Managing Director of the Fine Art Society, and Chris Clyne - international dress designer.
