I'm going to be visiting London and Scotland-(I'm not sure where yet) this summer, and I wondering if anyone knew of any good travel guides (books) to use? London I'm a bit more prepared for, but Scotland--I haven't a clue. Being new to the travel scene, I'd love something that was detailed and easy to use. Anyone know a good brand? Thanks a bunch! ^-^

Lonely planet guides are pretty good.

Lets Go and Rough Guide are also useful as well as some local guides. Best contact the tourist authorities and tourist information centers in Scotland, they can send you brochures and stuff.

There are also specialised guides one can use - if you go by Eurail/Interrail, use one of the guides designed for that kind of travel.

A site you should check out if you intend to go to the more remote parts:

Royal Mail Postbus

I'd go for a trusty Lonely Planet, but for Scotland get your bum into a pub and get chatting to the locals, if you can understand them then that'll be your best source of info :)
