And Other Scottish Oddities

The Oldest Post Office in the World by Hamish Brown

Hamish Brown, Scotland’s popular, veteran outdoor and travel author, takes us on a tour of ninety-four of the oddest locations located throughout the country. Each location is given a two page spread with a full colour photograph, maps and a description in Hamish’s own, inimitable, style. This compilation of the weird, surprising and unconventional will astonish even those who think they know the country well. From the White Wife in Shetland to the Oldest Post Office in the World in Galloway by way of all of Scotland’s regions and the strange things to be found, the Scotland-lover is presented not only with a book of unending interest but also a list of visits to tick off as they travel the country in pursuit of the unusual. With this beautiful, largish format book Hamish Brown presents another side of himself (and Scotland) to add to the Munro and Corbett bagging adventurer of Hamish’s Mountain Walk and Climbing the Corbetts, very much with his faithful Scots Magazine readership in mind.
