"The author does not attempt elaborate word-pictures that would seem pale beside the artist's colouring. His design has been, as accompaniment to these beautiful landscapes, an outline of Scotland's salient features, with glimpses at its history, national character, and customs, and at the literature that illustrates this country for the English-speaking world. The mainland only is dealt with in this volume, which it is intended to follow up with another on the Highlands and Islands."
