Fully revised and updated, this is the only book with detailed information and maps on every Scottish island. With the author's own paintings liberally illustrating it, this beautiful guide will take you everywhere, whether by armchair or yacht. From the abandoned crofts of Mingulay and the standing stones of Orkney to the white beaches of Colonsay and the spectacular Cuillins of Skye, this is the first complete gazetteer to cover all of Scotland's many hundreds of islands, including those which are uninhabited and those which are notoriously difficult to reach. Packed with information on access, anchorages, points of historical or natural interest and things to do and see, this fascinating compendium provides indispensable information for touring, for browsing, for reference, and for all of those travellers who wish to experience some of the most beautiful and remote places in the world. No other book begins to emulate the range and depth of the information contained in The Scottish Islands. Illustrated with full-colour illustrations and relief maps of all the main islands, this is both an impressive work of reference and a fascinating personal view of Scotland's distant outposts.

* As a reference source Haswell-Smith's book is invaluable ... a monumental labour of love that communicates the author's own passion for island hopping and combines it delightfully with his further talents as a painter and artist. Daily Telegraph * The definitive guide to Scottish island-hopping. Sunday Telegraph * The best book for tootling around skerries and sea-stacks ... this has it all. Scotsman * Stunning. Scottish Field * The island-hopping bible. Big Issue in Scotland * This impressive tome is the first comprehensive guide to every single island and it's an eye-opener. Glasgow Evening News * With support from excellent, attractive, informative maps and delightful sketches by the author...The book's wide appeal extends to the armchair traveller who will get the feel and breathe the air of these jewels scattered around the coast of Scotland. The author is to be congratulated on compiling so much in a readable way, and the publishers on a delightful production. Yorkshire Gazette and Herald
