Naldrett (Around the Coast in 80 Days) provides a handy guide to traveling the inhabited and uninhabited British Isles, reflecting a wide variety of ecosystems and histories. Each island gets one or two devoted pages in which Naldrett notes the best places to stay (on inhabited islands), eat, and explore, and describes the island’s notable features, including wildlife, culture, history, and more. He writes, for instance, about the island of Islay, known for its whiskey whose rich, peaty flavor is highly sought after worldwide. Naldrett’s brief but thorough discussions of each island make this a wonderful guide for traveling the British Isles, including some areas that are already quite popular for tourism.
VERDICT With rich, colorful pictures and helpful details, this book provides a wealth of information for exploring the many islands around Britain.
