Description

Scotland is a land of many languages - Gaelic, Norse, Pictish, Brythonic, Anglo Saxon, Modern English and some from before recorded time.

The result for the visitor is a confusing series of overlapping layers of place names, difficult to understand and often more difficult to pronounce.

Here at last is a simple pocket guide to Scotlands rich tapestry of names.

From Eass Forss (Waterfall Waterfall!) to Edinburgh (The Fort of Eidyn) for the first time in one place we have a simple reckoner to where means what with derivations.

Packed with information this is an essential short guide by an expert to the names that shaped and still shape our history.
