We just arrived back to the US from 10 days in Scotland. Loved it. I purchased Ian's guide a few weeks before we left and we definitely used it. The three day walking tour guide of Edinburgh was very helpful in navigating the highlights and must sees so that we would have it covered during out time there. Loved Edinburgh! Ian was also responsive to any messages I may have sent. The guide is very well done and worth purchasing.

I have known Ian for many years and he has always been a passionate and enthusiastic man with a deep affection for his home country of Scotland. He is also very hospitable and he goes out of his way to make people feel welcome in his life in general as well as in his tours of Edinburgh. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is considering visiting Edinburgh; you won’t get a better experience of this extraordinary place

Ian Black is the essence of everything Scottish in his photography, suggestions, travel tips, and knowledge of restaurants, castles, walks, etc. Both within Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, his deep love and appreciation for his country is evident in the depth of detail he provides for the want to be visitor to this incredible destination. In fact reading his guidebook has me longing to hop on a plane and follow the path he has laid out so wonderfully. I will recommend this to any friend or family who plans on venturing to the incredible country of Scotland. You can bet I will have Ian‘s travel book on hand when I make my sojourn to Scotland!
