5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide for visitors to Orkney
I recommend it! - Natural and human history is engaging and well laid out, with map and summary list of places to visit.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better stick with the 1971 edition ....
Some nice colour pictures, but then you can get those in the local tourist board freebie brochures. Having read both this book and Patrick Bailey's original (1971, reprinted 1974) harback 'Orkney' (in the David and Charles Island Series)can't help feeling that you'd be better off sticking with the latter if it's background you want. OK, some of the info is now outdated...

3.0 out of 5 stars Better stick with the 1971 edition ...., 24 July 2009
This review is from: Orkney: Pevensey Island Guides (Paperback)
Some nice colour pictures, but then you can get those in the local tourist board freebie brochures. Having read both this book and Patrick Bailey's original (1971, reprinted 1974) harback 'Orkney' (in the David and Charles Island Series)can't help feeling that you'd be better off sticking with the latter if it's background you want. OK, some of the info is now outdated but the geography and geology, history and (to some exent) archaeology don't change. And they are all dealt with in much greater depth than in this new, slim volume. Really wish I hadn't bothered.

3.0 out of 5 stars More magazine than guide, 23 Jun 2009
This review is from: Orkney: Pevensey Island Guides (Paperback)
An interesting read with good pictures. I would have been even happier with a little more guidance on what to see where and when and how to get there. Orkney was better than the book!

1.0 out of 5 stars not a guide book, 13 July 2009
This review is from: Orkney: Pevensey Island Guides (Paperback)
This is a very dated book - not at all what I was looking for. It reminds me of old school textbooks; interesting, yes, but not a guide book for first time visitors to Orkney.

A good, interesting read if you're going to Orkney. Yes, Orkney is fantastic for scenery, people, wildlife and archaelogy.
