Holiday reading

When I go somewhere different I always like to read a book that is set in or about the place I am going to. I have just visited the Isle of Harris and read Peter May's "Coffin Road". Also took "His Bloody Project" by Graeme McRae Burnett which, although set in Applecross, gave a vivid picture of a crofting community in the 19th century. 
Can anyone suggest other titles set in different parts of Scotland?

    Hi @Glenstrider. I live in Ballater, Royal Deeside, therefore I am very interested in our local history. I can fully recommend Amy Stewart Fraser's Hills of Home; all about her first hand experiences of 19th & early 20th century rural life in the local Glens here, really fascinating!
