Walking guide to the Orkney and Shetland Isles, Scotland, UK.
A guide to day walks on Scotland’s Northern Isles – Orkney, Shetland and Fair Isle – off the northeastern tip of Britain. This diverse landscape is packed with archaeological sites, dotted with rare wildflowers and thronged with seabirds and this book is a must for anyone wanting to explore this diverse landscape on foot.

Activities: walking, birdwatching, visiting archaeological sites. Seasons: April, May and June are the best months to go, for daylight, sunshine and nesting birds, but the Northern Isles are a year-round destination - hardly ever getting midges or snow!Centres: Sumburgh, Kirkwall, Lerwick, Stromness, Hamnavoe, Scalloway. Difficulty: from short walks to ancient monuments and waymarked coastal strolls to 10-mile traverses; something for everyone but some routes will require basic navigational skills. Must See: Superb wildlife: whales, otters, seals, puffins, whooper swans, birds of prey, seabirds and many nature reserves; ancient archaeological sites: Skara Brae, Jarlshof, the Ring o'Brodgar, the Mousa Broch; the Old Man of Hoy, the North Ronaldsay Coastal Traverse.
Walking on the Orkney and Shetland Isles is an inspirational guide to day walking on Scotland’s Northern Isles – Orkney, Shetland and Fair Isle – off the northeastern tip of Britain. Packed with archaeological sites, dotted with rare wildflowers and thronged with seabirds, these clusters of islands are a world away from the rest of Scotland. They sit at the turning point of the North Sea and the North Atlantic – Orkney nearest to mainland Scotland and Shetland further out – with the tiny dot of Fair Isle midway between the two.
This book is a must for anyone wanting to explore this diverse landscape on foot. Two sections – one for Orkney, the other for Shetland – describe over 80 walks, ranging from short strolls to ancient monuments to more challenging long coastal routes and moorland traverses.

80 walks on 25 islands across Orkney and Shetland.
Full-colour photographs and OS mapping.
Lots of information about the history of each area visited and the wildlife to look out for.
Full details of how to get to, and travel around, the islands.
