I'm going to find myself on a seven hour train journey to Dundee soon, some time on my hands there, and a seven hour journey back.

(i) What books would you suggest to give me a sense of the place?
(ii) What secondhand, antiquarian or other bookshops would you recommend? Or indeed other sights and sounds?

As it is a journey, I would recommend The Drove Roads of Scotland.

Or why not immerse yourself for such a long train trip in the beautiful Waverley, by Sir Walter Scott?

I will eat my bunnet if you find either of those unpalatable.

Ah, yes! To walk the hills and valleys trod by Young Master Waverley in his time. Oh, what larks we'll have.
