Looking for travel guides, photo compilations, travel memoirs, essays, travelogues about the UK - England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales. Not interested in things like Frommers, etc. unless they have a LOT of pictures.

Also interested in travel memoirs from just about anywhere except North America.

Round Ireland with a Fridge is a fun book. Author writes with good sense of humor    http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780312274924-Round+Ireland+With+a+Fridge

 

My Heart's in the Lowlands is about Scotland. Frankly, I couldn't stand the book...lol. The author has written some historical fiction based in Scotland (which she liberally refers to in the book). My issue with the book was she writes as if you are a travelling companion and there is a lot of "shall we...." and "wasn't that a delicious lunch...". It is distracting and somewhat creepy..lol.
