|Price: ||€ 39,90|
A completely revised edition of Martin Lawrence's guide to the Outer Hebrides from Barra northwards to the Isle of Lewis. This new edition of The Western Isles has been completely updated and improved by the use of colour throughout. Many of the photographs are new and almost every harbour and anchorage is now covered from the air to show the extent of drying rocks and low water channels. The plans have been corrected and are also now in colour. This pilot makes both an excellent on-board companion as well as a useful reference for anyone venturing across the Little Minch to explore the Outer Hebrides - one of the most remote and beautiful parts of the British Isles.
Martin Lawrence lives in Scotland and has spent many years exploring the west coast. He is well-known as the author of the Yachtman's Pilot series. Reviews: An excellent example of how text, charts and photos can be made to work together to enhance the information available to the navigator. It is also further evidence that this publisher is far ahead of its rivals in presentation of information for the yachtsman.
