Your travel companion as you go island hopping in Scotland. Gives you the secret places and hidden stories"This is an absolute gem of a book, a delight to read... I strongly recommend this to anyone planning a trip for the first time, regular visitors or locals alike..."In 'Travels in the Scottish Islands' the author skilfully weaves threads from a rich historical past with her observant, humorous and personal account of a colourful, but challenging present.The reader meets Gaelic storytellers, lighthouse builders, whisky lovers, megalomanic Victorians, mad rally drivers, shrewd clan chiefs and many more.The music of calling seabirds, the bleating of sheep on the hills, seals singing out on the skerries, the eternal washing of waves over white shell sands, and the ever present winds form a haunting backdrop.The narrative captures the unique blend of Scottish, Celtic and Norse language, culture and tradition found in these beautiful islands.Includes black and white photographs.
