Whether you're looking for a sandy paradise, a wild and windy clifftop steeped in history or a remote Scottish outpost with a warm pub, this book is the perfect tool for planning your trip.
Islands represent adventure, mystery, wilderness and escapism. Somewhere to run away to, to be marooned on and find paradise... The British Isles include some 194 inhabited islands (out of over 6000), ranging from remote lost worlds to famous and popular holiday spots, and this wonderfully comprehensive guide includes them all, featuring over 200 of the most incredible islands found around the coasts of Britain and Ireland.
Highlighting the best spots for foodies, wildlife enthusiasts, walkers and adrenaline-junkies, this all-encompassing compendium explores the most beautiful and interesting islands from the northernmost tip of Scotland to the south coast of England, taking in islands of Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland, the Isle of Man, the Scillies, the Channel Islands and the remote Faroe Islands along the way.
Illustrated with beautiful colour photography, Peter Naldrett's informative and entertaining text ensures you won't miss out on must-see attractions, wildlife and natural features, local food specialities, sporting activities, best places to stay and eat, and the all-important transport links to and from the mainland and other nearby islands. Historical and cultural anecdotes are woven through, giving a fascinating insight into the way of life on these uniquely secluded settlements.
