by Charles Tait
The new 240 page edition of the very successful Outer Hebrides Guide Book includes many new features and covers all of the latest archaeological discoveries, visitor attractions and many more less-frequented places. For the first time a series of itineraries are suggested. These cover all of the inhabited islands. Car or bicycle tours, walks, sites of interest and places to stop are all covered. Index boxes are included in each section to aid navigation.
The Introduction covers Natural and Cultural History in depth. Environment and Geology, as well as seasonal Birds, Wild Flowers and Animals are all described. Archaeology from the first settlers to Norse times is covered in depth. Medieval and Modern History, Place names, Language and Modern Times complete this section. The Gazetteer deals with each area and island in turn, and includes many out of the way places and uninhabited islands as well as the main attractions. The final section includes information on Transport, Services, What to Do and See and Further Reading. Ordnance Survey maps are an essential addition.
The book has over 600 Charles Tait images, as well as OS maps and some old prints. It is 140x220mm in size and provides a comprehensive source of information to the visitor.
