Charles Tait guide books are photographed, researched, designed and written by the author. The aim is to create authoritative, readable, informative, easily assimilated handbooks to each area. This book is extensively illustrated with photographs, as well as Ordnance Survey maps, old photographs and prints.
Also included are introductions covering natural history, archaeology, history and the economy. The Gazetteer covers each parish and island in depth and is followed by information on transport, local services, a bibliography and a detailed index.
