Description

Originally published in 1925, this guide uses Oban, reached by MacBrayne's steamers, by the Callander and Oban or the West Highland Railway, as the base for its tours. The style is entirely practical, and remarkably informative. A particular feature is the habit of quoting the cost of buildings and structures, where known; for example, the Suspension Bridge in inverness, cost over GBP26,,000 in 1855-56, while Noss Head Lighthouse, Wick cost GBP12,149 in 1849. By the time of publication, the British railways had been brought into four groups, after the ravages of the Great War. However, the guide retains the names of the old companies to avoid confusion.
