Scotland's towns and cities are packed with historical and scenic interest, and all of them have wonderful stories to tell. Well-known outdoors writer Roger Smith has gathered 30 fascinating urban walks, some from his popular column in "The Herald", covering Glasgow and the West, into a volume that is sure to interest a wide audience. A perfect antidote for restless weekends and holidays at home, as well as providing tourists with fantastic sightseeing opportunities, many of these walks are based on the weekly series that Roger wrote between 2003 and 2006, but in each case the walks have been thoroughly revised, updated and expanded. There are walks to suit all moods, from the heart of Glasgow's city centre to the West's leafy green spaces and stunning coastline: the book covers routes throughout Glasgow, including the bustling Merchant City, the vibrant West End and the scenic Queen's Park as well as in towns as diverse as Ayr, Biggar, Irvine, Rothesay and Dumfries.
