The islandbaggers bible!!
on 14 March 2001
This book is just superb - absolutely brilliant. It is an ABSOLUTE MUST for anyone interested in the best island/sailing area on the planet.
It is a steal even at this price. Nothing compares - not the Clyde cruising club, not even Martin Lawrence.
My only quibble is with Hamish's official island list; he's gone over the top with respect to island definition. ie: I think Skye is still an island and an island is an island if it's surrounded by water at high tide, never mind if it dries out at low water and there are brilliant islands which fall off his official headcount 'cos they're too small, like Staffa (but note his text covers Skye and Staffa admirably).
Maybe I'm an obsessive island list-ticker - a marine Munroist - a real sad git!!!??? I'm planning to put the real list on the web soon!!
