Synopsis: Wild, remote, and rich in both history and wildlife, the many islands dotting Scotland’s coastline are among the most unspoiled and beautiful destinations in the world. Formed during violent upheavals in the Earth’s crust nearly 3 billion years ago, and later eroded and shaped by the Ice Age, the islands also bear the scars of thousands of years of human occupation. With their Neolithic settlements, early Celtic Christian chapels, Viking place names, and clan fortresses, as well as more modern relics from two world wars, the islands are a historical treasure trove second to none. Both beautiful and practical, Exploring the Islands of Scotland offers the intrepid traveler fascinating insight into this stunning region. It details each island's history and flora and fauna, and provides valuable information on how to get there, what to see, where to stay, and the best island walks. More than 200 full-color photographs capture each gorgeous locale.
About the Author: Julian Holland trained as an artist at Cheltenham College of Art before going on to study graphic design, illustration and photography. He fell into a career in publishing when he was offered his first job as a book designer for Readers Digest, followed by stints as a magazine designer before ending up as a designer and art editor for Dorling Kindersley. From 1977 Julian was involved in freelance book design and book packaging, until a close brush with the grim reaper in 2004 inspired him to change his career and become a full-time author and photographer, concentrating on his two favourite subjects of islands and railways.
