This is the audiobook of my ninth travel memoir, The Scottish Isles: Shetlands, Orkneys and Hebrides (Part 1), first published in October 2019. I travelled around the Scottish islands a few months before, and report back on my experiences!
In 2018, I decided to tour the islands that lie off the coast of Scotland. I made it around the Orkney and Shetland groups, and to the inner-Hebrides islands of Raasay, Mull, Iona and Staffa as well. It was amazng to discover that Norse influences were as strong as Gaelic ones, indeed stronger on the Orkneys and Shetlands. There were archaeological sites dedicated to the excavation of amazing ancient communities that predated the Vikings and the Gaels. There's still plenty more to see and one day I'd like to return to the islands to finish the journey, and to visit the related, Danish archipelago of the Faroes as well.
The paperback / Kindle version, which is currently for sale on Amazon, has a great many photos and maps. You can look at these images in an enclosed colour PDF which comes with the audiobook files.

"I didn't expect much from this book but, wow, was I mistaken! It has extremely detailed information about those isles, plus useful links to other sites. I intend to keep this as a guide should I get a chance to visit Scotland, the land of most if not all of my ancestors. And now I am in search of the author's other books! READ THIS!! You will not regret doing so, I hope."
