Wild, remote, and rich in both history and wildlife, the many islands dotting Scotland's coastline are among the most unspoiled and beautiful destinations in the world. Formed during violent upheavals in the Earth's crust nearly 3 billion years ago, and later eroded and shaped by the Ice Age, the islands also bear the scars of thousands of years of human occupation. With their Neolithic settlements, early Celtic Christian chapels, Viking place names, and clan fortresses, as well as more modern relics from two world wars, the islands are a historical treasure trove second to none. Both beautiful and practical, Exploring the Islands of Scotland offers the intrepid traveler fascinating insight into this stunning region. It details each island's history and flora and fauna, and provides valuable information on how to get there, what to see, where to stay, and the best island walks. More than 200 full-color photographs capture each gorgeous locale.
