Lewis-Harris, two isles in one...lol, one of the most beautiful, breathtaking places on earth. The vivid extremes of colours and landscapes just boggles the mind. Frankly, I did not think a slim book could really portray the soul inspiring beautiful so well, but Francis Thompson's Lewis & Harris does just that.
From the white sands, to the turquoise waters, the green rolling lands, to the jagged rocks, this island is mesmerising with this constantly changing beauty. If that is not enough you have Calanais (Callanish, the Stonehenge of the North). Sorry, Calanais is much older, and stirs the mind and soul in a way Stonehenge never did. When you toss in the other stone circles, Duncarloway broch, here history collides, Bronze Age, Iron age and good golfing!! lol
This is simply a beautiful work, loaded with dozens of brilliant colour photographs covering every aspect of life on Lewis and Harris. A must for someone daring enough to visit, a delight to those you like to visit from their armchair.

I lived on Lewis for many years and have never seen such beautiful photographs, I bought this book as a wedding present and was absolutely delighted with the variety and quality of the book. Excellent choice!

This is quite an informative book if you are interested in Lewis, however be prepared to be dissapointed if you are interested in Harris. It spends most of its coverage on Lewis and devotes few pages to Harris. We are left with a sense of frustration as the history of Harris is barely mentioned whilst Lewis is dealt with in gushing terms. If the author had difficulty containing all the information within the one book then maybe they should have devoted this one just to Lewis. There are many interesting facts about Harris that were not touched upon and it would have been nice to learn a bit more about the history Harris. If you are interested in Lewis this is a good book to buy...but if you wish to know about Harris then do not bother as it just skims over it....

Despite the other two reviews, this book contains only the front page as a photograph. I bought it for ; 'This is simply a beautiful work, loaded with dozens of brilliant colour photographs covering every aspect of life on Lewis and Harris. A must for someone daring enough to visit, a delight to those you like to visit from their armchair. ' and there were none! Lewis and Harris History and pre-history is an informative book Im sure if I ever get round to reading it. God knows what book the others were reviewing, I think Amazon have mixed things upslightly so beware!

Used this to plan a few days on the motorbike on these islands.
Great reference material and some very nice photos in the book.
Made all the difference and ensured we maximised our time to visit some great areas of stunning beauty.
Excellent value.

Read this book whilst travelling up to the outer Hebrides. Some chapters could be a little better organised in that they sometimes leap about which can be confusing, but overall this is a very interesting book. The chapters on prehistory and reading the landscape were particularly useful in discovering hidden gems as not many sites are marked or even excavated on the Islands. Handy small size too. The other Lewis and Harris book by the same author is full of glossy photos and a shortened version of text, also good.
