Discovering Arran

£4.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

"The island of Arran is only 26 miles long by 12 miles across and yet, within that tiny area, there are more things to do and see and a greater variety of geology and natural history than almost anywhere else in Britain. This book is an introduction to the scenery, the history and, above all, the atmosphere of this island. The visitor can use it as a guide to the island, the Arran exile can find nostalgic reminders of his past, the incomer can discover more about his new home, and the native Arranach can refresh his knowledge and, even, 'discover' Arran anew. Author, Alastair Gemmell, explores the island in depth, indicating sites of special interest and providing detailed routes to explore the area by foot, by car, or by bus."

Book in very good condition.
