From the world’s oldest indoor loo to a theatre where spectators fill their pockets with poo, the definitive guide to the stranger side of Scotland shows there’s a lot more to the place than tartan, haggis and tossing the caber. Inside you’ll find:

The world’s longest man-made echo
A city where aliens are welcome
What the Royals really think of it
Britain’s weirdest wig
The worst Scottish accents ever
Our tallest hedge and oldest tree
Loch monsters nastier than Nessie
A road you can roll up
Scots in Space
Whether it’s Ruthven or Ruthven?
Britain’s loneliest bus stop (and its loveliest)
A school for spies
The cost of burning witches
An aeroplane made from seaweed
. . . and why the Queen needs rubber gloves
