Okay, so it's the kindle edition and not the beautifully illustrated paperback with stunning photos. But its 98p! Ideal if you just need some basic information on the hoof. A useful reference perhaps.

Scottish Island Bagging by Helen and Paul Webster, founders of Walkhighlands, is a guide to the magical islands of Scotland.

Focusing



on the ninety-nine islands that have regular trips or means of access



for visitors, plus fifty-five other islands which have no regular



transport but are still of significant size or interest, the authors



have described the best ways to experience each one. Of the islands



featured, many are household names – Skye, Lewis, Bute – while some,



such as the isolated St Kilda archipelago and the remote Sula Sgeir,



will be unknown to all but a hardcore few.

When it comes to things



to see and do, the islands of Scotland have it all. Wildlife



enthusiasts can watch out for otters, orcas and basking sharks, while



birdwatchers in particular are spoilt: look out for the rare corncrake



on Islay, sea eagles on Mull, or sight puffins, gannets, storm petrels



and many other seabirds on any number of islands – although beware the



divebombing bonxies.

Foodies can sample Arran or Westray cheese,



the many islands’ world-renowned seafood or learn about the whisky



making process and sample a wee dram on a distillery tour.

While



the human history may not stretch back in time as far as the geology of



these ancient lands, it is rich and varied: visit the 5,000-year-old



Neolithic village of Skara Brae on Orkney, or Mackinnon’s Cave on Mull,



following in the footsteps of Samuel Johnson and James Boswell. You can



even stay in the house on Jura where George Orwell wrote Nineteen Eighty-Four.Hillwalkers



can bag a Munro, walk the wild clifftops or take in the sights, or you



could just escape from it all on one of the dozens of beautiful and



deserted beaches – before joining the locals for a ceilidh into the wee



hours.Well served by ferries and other transport links,



getting around is easy. You could even take the world’s shortest



scheduled flight. In Scottish Island Bagging, let Helen and Paul Webster



be your guides to these enchanting isles.

Great pace to visit. I've been to arran and skye in the distant past, 1990s and have fond memories.
I've been to a good few of these.

My recommendation would be Colonsay if you're into quite wee beaches or Skye/Jura if you like hillwalking.

Heat added and book bought thank you.
Avoiding the wind and the rain and the cold will be your biggest challenge - that's summer in Scotland (I've lived here for 40 years in case you're wondering - wishing climate warming will speed up!!)...
Great offer
Thank you

What about the midges


They don't like the wind and rain either.
Thanks, one day hopefully I will get there.
