    Scotland is a land of many languages - Gaelic, Norse, Anglo-Saxon and modern English among them. The result is a confusing series of overlapping layers of place-names, difficult to understand and often more difficult to pronounce. This book covers some 7,000 names in sections on settlements and areas, lochs and sea areas, rivers, hills and mountains and mountain passes, plus an introduction to the history of Scottish place-names and a guide to Gaelic pronunciation.
