Nature and Travel

Fewer places on this planet have been as blessed by natural beauty as Scotland has been. The gentle slopes and rivers of the southern reaches have inspired poetry and paintings for centuries. Head north into the Highlands and you’ll find a kind of beauty that doesn’t exist anywhere else. From the glens to the mountains, from Loch Ness to Loch Lomond, writers who traffic in the natural world have had fewer greater places of inspiration than Scotland.

 

The same goes for travel writers. While ostensibly less populated than other parts of Britain, the freedom one feels while traveling through Scotland makes for incredible prose work. Walking in the footsteps of the clans, moving through the Highlands is like moving through time itself. With the best books and writers as a guide, readers will be able to find the very best spots and hidden gems in the country. Even for those with less time for traveling, picking up a great travel book allows you to embrace your inner adventurer without ever having to leave your living room!

 

East Neuk Books takes pride in our fantastic collection of Scottish nature and travel books. From classic tomes on travel in the times of olde to autobiographies of modern day travellers and guides, we have it all. Not only that, but our region-specific volumes will be of great interests not only to students of the natural world, but to those of history as well. And thankfully for the rest of us, the well-written prose allows for an easy read through territory that most of us have found only in the most academic of contexts.

 

So if you’re looking to buy nature and travel books online, take a gander at the great titles and authors below. From Gavin Maxwell to Jim Crumley to Mike Tomkies, you’ll be in the best of hands as you take a journey through the north of Britain and deep into the heart of Scotland.
