Read full description of the books:
One of the horrible histories I hadn't already read when I was younger. I enjoyed this, in a rather abstract I-don't-know-much Scottish history kind of way. Which is appalling seeing as my grandfather was Scottish.
This gave a good overall look into the very vast history of Scotland. I liked the bits on Stuart monarchs the most, I don think I realised just quite how bloody a history a Scotland has. I would have preferred a bit more information on the Jacobite risings, the battle of Culloden and the disbandment of the clans, seeing as it had such a profound effect on Scotland even up until this day.
