From Inverness to the Outer Hebrides and Shetland, Richenda Miers turns her attention to some of the last wildernesses of Europe. The guide covers all sides of the highlands and islands, exploring both the tourist honey-traps and Scotland's most remote regions. It features special sections on thriving traditions such as caber-tossing, Ceilidh music and story-telling, alongside the past history of clans and tartans and the Highland Clearances. The author's intimate knowledge of Highland life allows her to offer the reader a unique insight into the region, its people and their culture and beliefs; she offers sound advice as only an insider could. The guide also packs in a wealth of essential and up-to-date practical information; the latest listings, extensive maps and travel timetables, and expert advice on where to ski, walk, windsurf, fish, and star-gaze.
