Scotland has a remarkable 6,160 miles (9,910 km) of extraordinary coastline, and if you include all of Scotland’s islands the figure goes up to a staggering 10,250 miles (16,500 km). To celebrate this amazing geography, this April sees the publication of a completely revised and updated edition of Fi Martynoga’s A Handbook to Scotland’s Coasts.
With stunning geology, diverse marine and bird life, historic fishing ports, mouth-watering cuisine, ancient monuments, and coastal traditions going back centuries, this is the ultimate companion to Scotland’s coasts.
A Handbook to Scotland’s Coasts is an essential guide for beachcombers, walkers, wildlife lovers, birdwatchers, foragers, fossil-hunters, and anyone interested in how the unique geography of Scotland’s coastline has shaped, and continues to shape, the history of Scotland.
New edition to coincide with Year of Coasts & Waters 2020
