Edinburgh

Hardback
With its rugged setting and vast collection of Medieval and Georgian architecture, Edinburgh is one of the most picturesque cities in Europe. The Old Town and New Town districts of Edinburgh were listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995 and there are over 4,500 listed buildings within the city. One of Europe's major tourist destinations, Edinburgh attracts around 13 million visitors a year, and is the second most visited tourist destination in the United Kingdom, after London. In Mark Denton's extraordinary panoramic photographs of the city and its environs, landmarks such as Arthur's Seat, the Forth Rail Bridge and the Scott Monument leap from the page, and new icons like the Scottish Parliament and the Musuem of Modern Art are vividly presented. The camera roams east to North Berwick & Bass Rock, west to Linlithgow, south to the Pentland Hills, and north to North Queensferry, and takes in the amazing and mysterious Rosslyn Chapel. Includes an introduction on Edinburgh's location, history, architecture, culture and society by Magnus Linklater, who was formerly editor of The Scotsman and now writes a column for Scotland on Sunday.
