"Exploring The Islands Of Scotland" by Julian Holland

Borrowed this lovely book from the library and have just renewed it. Full of information and stunning photographs - a coffee table book I suppose but in the best possible sense.

Just been reading up on the Outer Hebrides - I didn't know for example that Pobull Fhinn stone circle and Barpa Langass burial mound are the oldest surviving stone structures in the Outer Hebrides. Does mean North Uist was populated before Callanish was built?

"Like the outposts it describes it is awash with a remarkable profusion of wildlife and history, mountains and sea" Scottish Field
