Product description

The Orkney Guide Book, 4th edition (656 pages, 220x140mm) ISBN 978-0-951785-98-0 (£24.95) A major new edition of the "Orkney Bible" The new edition of the very successful Orkney Guide Book includes many new features and covers all of the latest archaeological discoveries, visitor attractions and many more less-frequented places. For the first time a series of 21 day itineraries are suggested. These cover all of the Mainland parishes and inhabited islands. There are Cultural and Natural Heritage Itineraries, the latter including both summer and winter. Car or bicycle tours, walks, sites of interest and places to stop are all included. Index boxes are included throughout the book to aid navigation. The Introduction covers Natural and Curtural History in depth. Enviroment and Geology, as well as seasonal Birds, Wild Flowers and Animals are all described. Archaeology from the first settlers to Norse times is covered in depth. Medieval and Modern History, Placenames, Language and Modern Orkney complete this section. The Gazetteer deals with the Mainland parishes and the islands in turn, and includes many out of the way places and uninhabited islands as well as the main attractions. The final section includes information on Transport, Services, What to Do and See, Where to Eat and Further Reading. Ordnance Survey maps are an essential addition.
