About this book

The first guide dedicated to this group of islands in many years: from the Isle of Skye in the north to community-owned Gigha in the south, 24 islands are covered, with full practical details of how to get to each one, what to do and see while there, where to stay and where to eat. A dedicated wildlife section details interesting and rare species and where and when to see them, from whale-watching trips off Mull to RSPB hides and reserves and ongoing conservation programmes. Suggested routes and recommended packing lists are included for hikers, while history, myths and legends bring greater depth of understanding to present-day island life.
The Inner Hebrides strike a perfect balance between feeling remote and being accessible on any budget. Accommodation options covered include hotels, self-catering cottages, guest houses, hostels, campsites and bothies, while transport option range from self-drive to public transport, cycling and walking. Whether dolphin-spotting or birdwatching, beach-combing or walking, whisky tasting or tucking into freshly caught seafood, making a pilgrimage to Iona or cheering on the Highland Games on Skye, Bradt's Inner Hebrides is the ideal companion for a successful visit.

About the author

After having holidayed around the Inner Hebrides every year since she was born, Katie Featherstone spent her first decade of adulthood getting as far away from the UK as possible. Her obsession with islands comes from the idea of an isolated community; tiny kingdoms separated by savage seas and the plentiful coastline surrounding them. Her family seem to share this enthusiasm and have moved to the Isle of Islay permanently. Katie continues to travel, but always returns to the Hebrides.
