Scotland, with its unique character and tradition, provides material galore for M. Sasek, who is wonderfully and wholly at home in the world of kilt and tartan, pipes and pipers, whiskey and haggis.   In this happy and exciting guide to Scotland's great capital, he has once again captured the very spirit, the pride, and grandeur of one of the noblest places on earth.

All the famous landmarks of this festival city are here—Princes Street, St. Giles' Cathedral, and the nearby Forth Bridge, and we can walk along the Royal Mile from the famous Castle to Holywood Palace.  It is not only children who will find enchantment in this lovely book, and Scotsmen the world over will surely agree that This is Edinburgh!
