Publisher's Description

Living in a country that has more than 10,000 miles of coastline, it’s only natural that the Scots have an ancient, deep-rooted and fascinating connection to the sea. The seas around Scotland are the source of vast wealth, great hardship, dramatic conflict and new beginnings and, throughout history, Scots have taken to the water: to catch fish, to defend the country, to have fun and to travel to new lands.

Based on the popular BBC Scotland television series, The Scots at Sea, this book includes additional information and explores the ways in which the unique Scottish character has been shaped and influenced by its turbulent relationship with the sea.

Includes stories about famous ships and vessels including Cutty Sark, Thermopylae and Waverley.

Lavishly illustrated

Editorial Reviews
