At last, a guidebook covering some of Scottish paddling's best kept secrets.
Scotland is a world-class sea-kayaking destination, the Scottish Islands being rightly famous for the standard of paddling they offer.
The North and East Coasts don't have as many sheltering islands as the West and there is always some sort of swell, but they will richly reward your efforts to explore their hidden nooks and crannies - stunning cliff and coastal scenery, numerous bird colonies, and fascinating fishing villages each with their own history and character.
Forty-five journeys from Cape Wrath to Berwick upon Tweed are described in a way that is both inspirational and informative.
Details of launching and landing sites, tides and potential hazards are provided and the coast is described in exquisite detail.
This means that it can also be used as a kayaker's 'pilot' for any journey they might wish to undertake in this area.
It follows the successful format of other Pesda Press sea kayaking guides, presenting the information in a user-friendly fashion and making good use of maps and colour photographs.
