Bradshaw’s Guide of 1863 was the staple book to what’s what and where’s where for the mid-Victorians and it gives the modern reader a unique insight into the world of the nineteenth-century travellers. The railways themselves opened up Scotland properly to tourism for the first time, and many journeys that once took days to complete could now be undertaken in hours, bringing its many attractions within the reaches of the masses. This illustrated guide records the sights to be seen in the towns and cities encountered along the route.


‘Bradshaw’s Guides were invaluable in their time and they provide the modern-day reader with a fascinating insight into the nineteenth century rail traveller’s experience.’


Campbell McCutcheon takes us up the eastern side of Bradshaw’s Scotland, using contemporary Victorian and Edwardian photographs and postcards to illustrate the scenes that the users of Bradshaw’s Guide to Scotland’s Railways would have experienced. This volume covers primarily the lines of the North British Railway and the Great North of Scotland Railway.
