This little book is the perfect introduction to 45 Scottish icons, from the red deer and golden eagle to the Highland cow and ubiquitous midge! In addition, the author offers his take on creatures of myth and legend, such as the world-famous Loch Ness Monster and the mysteriously watery kelpies.

He also includes other beasties which may or may not be classed as animals in the conventional sense - such as the haggis (rarely seen alive but eaten every Burns Night) and the bagpipes (surely some kind of animal given their appearance and piercing call).

Get to know them all!
