iScotland iPhone app
"iScotland finds nearby Scottish places of interest - not cafes and hotels, but places of real historic, cultural, and general interest. It does this by using your current location to query the Gazetteer for Scotland, the well-known and vast geographical encyclopaedia, featuring details of towns, villages, bens and glens from the Scottish Borders to the Northern Isles. The encyclopaedia has been compiled in association with the University of Edinburgh and the Royal Scottish Geographical Society and is the most extensive source of quality information on Scotland available. Exclusively available to iScotland on mobile platforms, it contains more than 17,500 entries and 10,000 photos - everything you wanted to know about places in Scotland is now available at your finger tips. iScotland uses your device location to find nearby places; the information for those places of interest is displayed in conjunction with Google Earth"
