WONDERS OF SOUTHERN SCOTLAND: A Guide to 35 Top Historic & Prehistoric Sites
The first of three regional guides to be published in quick succession, Wonders of Southern Scotland covers the area between the southern border of Scotland and Edinburgh. It was difficult to choose just 35 sites out of a great many more I have visited over the past 15 years or so, but these are among my favorites.

Keep in mind that these 35 are not "THE Top 35 Sites" but, instead, are "35 TOP Sites." That is, sites I think most people (and their children) will enjoy. They range from beautifully furnished castles to early historic military and industrial sites to remote (though easily accessible) prehistoric sites. Bon voyage!

Publication date: June 2013.
