Charles Tait Guide Book: The Shetland Islands Guide Book 3rd Edition


The complete guidebook to the Shetland Islands

Out of stock



We loved the guidebooks by Charles Tait so much, and they’re not easily findable here in the USA, so we decided to import them and sell them ourselves.

The Introduction covers Natural and Cultural History, Environment and Geology, as well as seasonal Birds, Wild Flowers and Animals. Archaeology from the first settlers to Norse times is covered in depth. Medieval and Modern History, Placenames, Language and Modern Times complete this section.

The Gazetteer deals with each area and island in turn, and includes many out of the way places and uninhabited islands as well as the main attractions. The final section includes information on Transport, Services, What to Do and See and Further Reading. Ordnance Survey maps are an essential addition.

The book has over 700 Charles Tait images, as well as OS maps and some old prints. It is 140x220mm in size and provides a comprehensive source of information to the visitor.

288 full-color pages.
