New Wild guide to Scot­land pub­lished

The Oban Times - - News -

A NEW guide to Scot­land’s se­cret places and wild ad­ven­tures has been pub­lished this week.

Part of the award-win­ning Wild Guide se­ries from Wild Things Pub­lish­ing Ltd, Wild guide Scot­land: Hid­den places, great ad­ven­tures and the good

life was pub­lished on Mon­day (May 1).

The guide has been com­piled by Kim­ber­ley Grant, a travel and life­style jour­nal­ist from Glas­gow, Shet­land-based pho­tog­ra­pher, writer and moun­taineer David Cooper, and Ayr­shire travel and fash­ion pho­tog­ra­pher Richard Gas­ton.

They have trav­elled all over the High­lands and Is­lands to re­search, write about and pho- to­graph more than 750 se­cret places and wild ad­ven­tures, in­clud­ing an­cient forests and lost ru­ins, se­cret beaches, wild swim­ming wa­ter­falls and wildlife spot­ting lo­ca­tions.

The book builds on a decade of re­search and in­cludes grid ref­er­ences and di­rec­tions for each lo­ca­tion. It also cov­ers places to eat, drink and stay, from dis­til­leries and brew­eries to re­mote inns and even both­ies and cave dwellings.

The guide cov­ers from Perthshire and Loch Lomond, right up to Orkney and Shet­land and many places in be­tween, and the pub­lish­ers de­scribe the guide as ‘reach­ing places that tra­di­tional guide­books fail to reach’.
