With a 10,000-year history, Scotland offers a rich and fascinating literary past. Renowned authors such as James Boswell, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle all hail from Scotland, as did Rudyard Kipling. He would go on to become Lord Rector of St. Andrews, a venerable institution that has inspired numerous authors to take up the pen.

Scotland is also home to some of the world's best golf courses, and collections about the sport and those focused on the country may often intersect.
