More About This Title Bizarre Scotland


From the world's oldest indoor loo to a theater where spectators fill their pockets with poo, the definitive guide to the stranger side of Scotland shows there's a lot more to the place than tartan, haggis, and tossing the caber. Inside you'll find: the world's longest man-made echo, a city where aliens are welcome, Britain's weirdest wig, the worst Scottish accents ever, the tallest hedge and oldest tree, Loch monsters nastier than Nessie A, Britain's loneliest bus stop (and its loveliest), a school for spies, the cost of burning witches, an airplane made from seaweed, and why the Queen needs rubber gloves. 


David Long is the author of more than a dozen books, including London Underground: Architecture, Design and History and A History of London in 100 Places.
