Blue and purple skies seem to predominate in this pack of 54 full-colour views of Scotland. The photographs are the work of Duncan I. McEwan, one of Scotland’s foremost landscape photographers. All the images are in horizontal format which may annoy the card-playing fraternity but that does at least provide uniformity. Each image is named. The back design features a diamond-shaped Celtic knotwork pattern against a black background. See the box►
Other packs in this series include Glorious Chester, Glorious England, Glorious Liverpool, Glorious Wales, and Glorious York (www.britaininprint.com).
