Very pleased. Clear map and height of the land easily recognised through colouration of the highlands. Light in weight but strong with its plastic coating.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very clear, useful map, 28 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really helpful map for an overall view of all the islands. This was helpful for travelling by car or cycle in getting an overall idea of distances and the situation of various islands. It's a very clear map. However you still need O.S. maps if you are planning to go walking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little book, 28 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Extremely valuable for exploring the Outer Hebrides. The walks are varied and well planned with a range of difficulties for different skills of walkers. There's so much information in such a little book, the instructions for getting to the start of each walk are also very clear. We walked 10 of the 'B' standard walks. Without the guide we would not have been confident to set out on some of the routes or even to find the start points. Thanks for an excellent little book which added so much to our holiday.


The Desperate Journey (Kelpies)
The Desperate Journey (Kelpies)
by Kathleen Fidler
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars What a journey!, 17 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a book for older children but I, as an adult, learnt so much. It is a story about the Clearances in Scotland and the tale of a family's journey first to Orkney and then across the ocean to the Winnipeg area of Canada. I bought the book as I was visiting Canada and I discovered that the story is all based on facts as an area of land in the Red River was purchased by the Earl of Selkirk for Scottish families forced to be emigrants by the Clearances. I assume that their journey is also based on fact as they travelled right up north through Hudson Bay and then south along the river for 29 days before they reached the area where Winnipeg now stands. What an amazing journey!

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding guide book of Shetland., 24 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent guide book which I used throughout our recent visit to Shetland. It taught us so much about the islands, their geology, scenery, archaeology, history, story of the people and all about the wonderful wildlife. Wherever we went there was always some interesting information about the district. The guide book enabled us to enjoy our visit to Shetland so much as it helped us to plan routes, explorations and walks. The guide contains clear maps of every region and has beautiful photographs and sketches. I also like it as it does not contain advertisements for shops or accommodation. My only complaints are that the book is hard backed so it was heavy to carry in luggage and I do wish that places mentioned in the text were in bold print to make them quicker to find on the page. However I can fully recommend the guide to any visitor to Shetland.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great map to get an overall view of the Shetland Islands., 24 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great map to use when travelling through the islands by car or bicycle as all the islands are on one sheet. It is very easy to read and clearly printed. It also shows places of interest, ferry routes, cliffs etc. It is excellent as a route planner as distances can be judged easily but Ordnance Survey maps of particular areas will be needed if you plan to go walking.
