Isles of Scilly compact guidebook, 25 Feb. 2011
This guidebook was purchased for my elderly mother who is going with a group to the Isles of Scilly in April. It is light and slim ideal to pack yet answers many questions one would want to know about a new place. Good general maps; one map of all the islands and then separate maps for each island. This has helped my mother work out which islands she will be going to and the quide has much increased her pleasure of anticipation. The information was wide ranging but detailed enough; covering the islands` geology, landscape, history, wildlife, agriculture and much more. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the island for the first time or to anyone who has a general interest in the Isles.
