A compendium of information on Scottish life, work, play and imagination. Over 400 alphabetical articles with over 3500 index entries. When The Companion appeared in 1981 it was hailed as a remarkable achievement: here was the first reference book to cover all the significant aspects of Scottish life, thought and imagination throughout history, with articles on individuals, movements and institutions. This new and completely revised edition takes in the events of the past decade which has seen a flowering of Scottish art, music and literature and a growing awareness that Scotland's rich and diverse culture has much to be celebrated for its distinctiveness. Over 400 articles range from childrens' street games to portrait painting, from eating habits to great industrialists, and from football to the Scottish Enlightenment.

This book addresses the general politics of promotion and the disputes over state assistance for the Fort William-Mallaig line, rather than the heroics and the romance of construction and operation. It reviews other schemes, more or less successful. And it examines the expectations bound up with the railway development, asking how far these had been achieved, or remained relevant, by 1914.'I think I have sometimes made two blades of grass grow where only one grew before, and that is ... perhaps the highest function a man can do for his country': Charles Forman, civil engineer, evidence in support of the Invergarry & Fort Augustus Railway, 1896.
