An attractive and informative guide,
By A Customer
This review is from: Islay (Pevensey Island Guides) (Paperback)
Looking at the superb photographs in this book you would think that the weather on this Scottish island is always glorious! Famous places such as the famous "Round Church" at Bowmore (Kilarrow Parish) are included. The Isle of Islay is not without problems - such as precarious employment prospects (due to vagaries in the whisky industry, tourism, etc), but then this book is not seeking to be an in-depth report into social conditions. This book gives a very good overview of the history, flora, fauna and geography of this west of Scotland island. It contains useful information (particularly for walkers) and would also make an attractive souvenir of a visit. This book should inspire the reader to make a visit to this attractive, uncrowded island. Incidentally, the island is pronounced Eye-la - not Eye-lay!
