Wild, remote, and steeped in history, with waters rich in marine life and shores rich in flora and fauna, the numerous freshwater lochs of Scotland are among the most unspoiled and beautiful destinations to be found anywhere in Britain. Lochs is the first book to delve into the fascinating stories surrounding these lochs — from hidden monsters and secret islands to buried treasure and ruined castles. Compiled by best-selling author and photographer Julian Holland, this book gives insight into the historical background and natural history of over 30 freshwater lochs. From remote Loch Coruisk, set in the Black Cuillins of Skye, and the prison of Mary, Queen of Scots in the middle of Loch Leven to the sinister depths of Loch Morar and the famous monster of Loch Ness, there is a loch to suit every taste in this book.
