More About This Title The Little Book of Scotland


The ultimate compendium of trivia miscellany about Scotland's unusual history

Take a funny, fast-paced, fact-packed look at the most frivolous, fantastic, or simply strange information that there is to tell about Scotland. Here we find out about unusual crimes and punishments, eccentric inhabitants, famous sons and daughters, and literally hundreds of other wacky facts about Scotland. This book contains historic and contemporary trivia, including such gems as the real story of William "Braveheart" Wallace, which king was murdered in a barn, and where the World War II Commandos were formed. With subjects ranging from Sir Walter Scott to Sir Sean Connery, Queen Victoria to Mary Queens of Scots, this remarkably engaging compendium is essential reading for travelers and Scots alike.
