Walk Orkney and Shetland Islands Scotland

Walk Orkney and Shetland Islands Scotland

Walk Orkney and Shetland Islands Scotland. A guide to day walks on Scotland's Northern Isles - Orkney and Shetland - off the northeastern tip of Britain. Packed with archaeological sites, dotted with rare wildflowers and thronged with seabirds, these clusters of islands are a world away from the rest of Scotland. They sit at the turning point of the North Sea and the North Atlantic - Orkney nearest to mainland Scotland and Shetland further out - with the tiny dot of Fair Isle midway between the two. This book is a must for anyone wanting to explore this diverse landscape on foot. Two sections - one for Orkney, the other for Shetland - describe over 80 walks, ranging from short strolls to ancient monuments to more challenging long coastal routes and moorland traverses. 80 walks on 25 islands across Orkney and Shetland, full-colour photographs and OS mapping, lots of information about the history of each area visited and the wildlife to look out for and full details of how to get to, and travel around, the islands. Walking in the Orkney and Shetland Islands: 80 Walks in the Northern Isles (Cicerone Guide).
