Photographs by Dennis Hardley.

Scotland is a country remarkably little known even to Scotsmen. With the seeing eye of an artist Dennis Hardley has here recorded a Scotland which is unfamiliar, sometimes because the places are themselves strange, sometimes because the viewpoint and lighting give freshness to themes otherwise near to cliché. Edinburgh, for instance, is seen not in the customary Princes-Street view, but in the melodramatic light of a scarlet sunset; Mull appears in terms of a miraculously frozen waterfall; Glencoe is recorded, not in its usual lowering aspect, but as the location of a pastoral sheep-farming scene; the Trossachs are the setting for some distant dinghies racing on Loch Ard; the Cuillins are viewed across the sands of Loch Slapin on Skye; while Dunottar Castle is dimly outlined in swirling mist. These are just a few of the subjects which together epitomise a different and more genuine Scotland than that which the conventional calendar subjects generally convey.

That the illustrations have been chosen logically, and not merely for their outstanding quality as pictures, is made clear by the textual narrative in which Maurice Lindsay has set them. Here they are seen to exemplify in the most illuminating way the lochs and glens, the fishing villages and the ancient towns, the medieval castles and the Georgian country houses, the Highlands and the Islands which together make up the true, if too often the unfamiliar Scotland.

Dennis Hardley, the photographer, lives at Connel in Argyllshire, while Maurice Lindsay, who is the Director of the Scottish Civic Trust, is a Glaswegian.
