Must-have book for Scottish Island-hopping
on 4 January 2001
This is a fantastic book which I'd thoroughly recommend to anyone taking a tour around the western highlands and islands of Scotland. Even though I'm from Aberdeen, I bought it for our honeymoon to Skye and Oban as even we Scots know little about the attractions of our own country and it's the kind of book which is not just aimed at international tourists. It's now the most dog-eared book I own, with many of the pages bringing back memories of our trip. Full of no-nonsense information on accommodation and restaurants, it is matter of fact and absolutely invaluable. It is uncompromising, with the authors being decidedly straight-talking in their reviews of places which they felt had little appeal. It enabled us to plan day trips to places of interest and navigate our way around the isles, making sure we missed nothing. Buy it before you go, use it to make travel arrangements and be sure to take it with you everywhere you go on your trip. Bargain buy, won't date quickly, simple to use. Get it on your bookshelf now!
