About the Book
Rather than merely record the traditional 'chocolate box' type of images of Scotland; kilts; haggis; stags and heathery mountains; this is a personal wander round my homeland, Scotland, visting some out of the way places as well as those better known to visitors.
The extended revision of an earlier book covers; the Mountains, Lochs, and Glens of Scotland; the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow; the town of Hamilton; David Livingstone, including some recent and little known information about his early life; the Flora and Fauna of Scotland; Religion and Cultural heritage; and lists some useful Web Sites for further research.

Trained originally as an electronics engineer, working in infra-red technology, and camera systems. Retrained for Christian Ministry. Served in churches for 19 years then retrained to work in Secondary Education, teaching Mathematics and Religious and Moral Education. Took early retirement and now back in pastoral ministry - serving the church which was attended by David Livingstone [missionery explorer] and his family, and the young Keir Hardie [political reformer]. A keen amateur photographer, enjoying the landscape and flora and fauna of my homeland. Enjoyed taking photographs in school of artwork, plays and musical productions and school shows and activities, and turning them into calendars - not for general publication though.
