The Outer Hebrides Guide Book
***** Must have to really see the Outer Hebrides, ‘great book if doing the Outer Isles. The book has every sight you could think of visiting and includes not only the main, easily accessible islands but the outliers as well. The book has good historical info and gives grid references so you can actually see some of the more obscure locations. It’s worth noting that the book focuses on the sights so don’t expect the where to stay/where to eat info you tend to get in other books. However, it is so easy to find that stuff online’ – customer review
