"As a reference source Haswell-Smith's book is invaluable . . . a monumental labour of love that communicates the author's own passion for island hopping and combines it delightfully with his further talents as a painter and artist." (Daily Telegraph)

"The definitive guide to Scottish island-hopping." (Sunday Telegraph)

"The best book for tootling around skerries and sea-stacks . . . this has it all." (Scotsman)

"Stunning." (Scottish Field)

"The island-hopping bible." (Big Issue in Scotland)

"This impressive tome is the first comprehensive guide to every single island and it's an eye-opener." (Glasgow Evening News)

"With support from excellent, attractive, informative maps and delightful sketches by the author...The book's wide appeal extends to the armchair traveller who will get the feel and breathe the air of these jewels scattered around the coast of Scotland.
