Edinburgh’s rugged setting and vast collection of Medieval and Georgian architecture make it one of the most picturesque cities in Europe. In 1995, UNESCO named the Old Town and New Town districts World Heritage Sites, and there are over 4,500 listed buildings within the city. Mark Denton’s Edinburgh is an extraordinary visual guide to the city and its surroundings. 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 Museum of Modern Art are vividly presented. Denton’s camera roams east to North Berwick and Bass Rock, west to Linlithgow, south to the Pentland Hills, north to North Queensferry, and takes in the amazing and mysterious Rosslyn Chapel. An introduction by Magnus Linklater, former editor of The Scotsman, provides an absorbing look at Edinburgh’s location, history, architecture, culture, and society.
