For centuries Orkney & Shetland were part of the Nordic world. Today this legacy can still be found there — in physical remains, place-names, local traditions and folklore. But there is far more to the islands than this. As well as remarkable monuments - including Neolithic stone circles and settlements, medieval churches and castles, naval defences from the Second World War - they boast magnificent scenery and are rich in wildlife. 

Orkney and Shetland have long held a fascination for Paul Murton. In this book he travels through the islands, from Muckle Flugga in the north to Stroma in the south. Full of observation, history, anecdote and encounters with those who live there, this book also serves as a guide to the many places of interest and is a wonderful introduction to the most northerly parts of Britain.
