Reisgids Travel guides Orkney | Bradt Travel Guides

Voor vele landen en streken net zo goed, zo niet beter dan de Planet. soberder uitgevoerd, maar ook met veel informatie voor backpackers en met veel kaartmateriaal. Een aanrader! Voor Orkney is dit echt een unieke gids ... er is weinig beschkbaar met zulke goede informatie.

Bradt's new guide to Orkney is written by experienced writer and journalist Mark Rowe, author of Bradt's hugely popular guide to the Outer Hebrides and something of a specialist in more remote parts of Scotland. Orkney comprises 70 islands, 19 inhabited, and the focus of this guide is the 13 major inhabited islands. Masses of background information is included, from geography and geology to art, architecture and archaeology, with significant coverage of wildlife, too, as well as all the practical details you could need: when to visit, suggested itineraries, public holidays and festivals, local culture, plus accommodation and where to eat and drink. Wildlife lovers, walkers, bird-watchers, beach lovers, archaeology enthusiasts, genealogists, foodies, couples seeking escape and cyclists are all catered for, and this is an ideal guide for those who travel simply with curious minds to discover far-flung places of great cultural, historical and wildlife interest. Orkney is extraordinary. Home to Skara Brae, the most important Stone-Age village in northern Europe, it is also the site of the Neolithic henge of the Ring of Brodgar and Maeshowe chambered tomb, the entrance to which is aligned with the setting sun on the winter solstice. In fact, Orkney has so many archaeological sites it has been designated Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site. Here, too, you'll find the Old Man of Hoy spectacular 140m-high sea stack, Scapa Flow, scene of the dramatic scuttling of the German Fleet in 1919, and Marwick Head nature reserve, the definitive wildlife location, dramatically perched on cliffs and a wonder-world for bird lovers. The archipelago also offers the world's shortest scheduled commercial flight - just two minutes, between Westray and Papa Westray - and is the location of Scotland's only wine festival and the UK's most northerly distillery. Food lovers won't be disappointed either with an astonishing number of local food outlets and family producers, some going back more than 100 years. Whatever your interest, whatever time of year you visit, and whether you're a first-time or repeat visitor, Bradt's Orkney is the ideal companion for a successful visit.

Wandelkaart Topografische kaart 467 Explorer Shetland mainland central | Ordnance Survey

Met zijn 4cm voor 1 km (2 ½ cm voor 1 mijl) schaal, is de OS Explorer kaartenserie de ideale en meest gedetailleerde kaartenreeks voor mensen die graag outdoor-activiteiten zoals fietsen, wandelen, paardrijden, klimmen en watersporten.

Deze kaart is nog gedetailleerder dan de 'gewone' Landranger maps. Voor- en achterzijde bedrukt! Zeker op de moors en andere natuurgebieden van onschatbare waarden met echt alle aspecten van het landschap op de kaart ingetekend. Zeer goede detailkaart met topografische ondergrond. Hierop zijn toeristische symbolen van bezienswaardigheden ingetekend, daarnaast staan bijvoorbeeld campings en jeugdherbergen vermeld en - voor wandelaars het belangrijkst - alle right of way paden en Lange afstands Wandelpaden zijn er op te vinden. De ideale kaart voor het wandelen in Engeland, Wales of Schotland.
 
These highly detailed maps show all the administrative boundaries, settlements as small as isolated farms, the road network down to unfenced roads and country tracks, and field boundaries (hedges and drystone walls) which make navigation across the countryside much easier. Steep gradients on roads are indicated. Various landmarks, e.g. powerlines, archaeological sites, windmills, churches and lighthouses are shown and additional graphics indicate natural terrain features such as cliffs, scree, mud and vegetation variations. The contour interval is 5 metres in the lower parts of the country and 10 metres in the uplands, and spot heights are marked. Each map covers an area of 30 x 20km (i.e. approx. 19 x 12 miles), with some double-sided maps covering more, as indicated in the individual descriptions. The maps are fully GPS compatible, with the National Grid shown at 1km intervals and latitude and longitude indicated by margin ticks at 1'.
 
The Explorer series has replaced the earlier, green-cover Pathfinder maps. The Explorer series is now complete and covers all of England, Wales & Scotland. Some sheets for popular areas like the National Parks are still branded as Outdoor Leisure (OL) maps, but are now included in this series as the cartography is the same as that in the Explorer Maps. The Explorer maps offer a substantial improvement on the Pathfinder series, with greater use of colour, larger area per map, and stronger emphasis on information for ramblers and tourists.
 
This series is ideal for walking and other outdoor pursuits and each map shows a large amount of information for ramblers and tourists. Public rights of way are shown (except in Scotland), together with other routes with public access: National Trails and Recreational Paths, permitted paths and bridleways, and selected cycle routes. Open access land created under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 is marked. Tourist information includes caravan and camp sites, Park & Ride locations, recreation/leisure/sport centres, museums, historic buildings, English Heritage and National Trust sites, rural pubs, etc. The map legend is in English only, except for the tourist information content which is also in French and German

Reisgids Shetland Guide Book | Charles Tait

The Shetland Guide Book offers unrivalled detail on the more than 100 islands that make up the Shetland Isles. The islands have a wealth of archaeological history, from viking farms to bronze age burial mounds, but the natural wonders are just as impressive and this guide will tell you where you can catch a glimpse of everything from puffins to ponies.
 
Charles Tait Guidebooks
 
Charles Tait Guidebooks are photographed, researched, designed and written by the author. Being an Orcadian photographer and travel writer, Charles Tait has been publishing guidebooks based on the natural and cultural history of the Highlands and Islands since 1991. The aim is to create authoritative, readable, informative, easily assimilated handbooks to each area. Each book is extensively illustrated with photographs by Charles Tait, as well as Ordnance Survey maps, old photographs and prints. The guides include introductions covering natural history, archaeology, history and the economy. The Gazetteer covers each parish and island in depth and is followed by information on transport, local services, a bibliography and a detailed index.
 
Guidebooks for Scotland in the Charles Tait series also include publications on the North Highlands, the Isle of Skye and the Outer Hebrides.
 
How this guide to Shetland is laid out
 
The first 120 pages are used to give an overview of the natural environment of the Shetland Isles as well as the archaelogy, history and culture.
 
The following Gazetteer sections discuss the Shetland mainland, which is divided up into south, west, central and northeast, Whalsay, Lerwick, Bressay, Noss, Yell, Fetlar, Unst, Foula, Papa Stour, Skerries and Fair Isle. Text and photographs build a picture of the area, with historical photos thrown in for comparison. Although not exactly itineraries, as no driving directions, distances or times are provided, sections of mapping are given to help with navigation and the sights are listed in geographical order. So with the aid of an additional map or atlas, you could easily plan a driving route visiting the sights that interest you most.
 
At the back of the book is information on how to get to Shetland by plane, public transport, car or motorhome. There is also some information on inter-island ferries and contact information and websites for several of the attractions discussed in the guide. 
 
Finally, there is an index to help you navigate the guide. On the inside back cover is an overview map of the Shetland Islands.

Reisverhaal Reisgids The Viking Isles | Paul Murton

Paul Murton beschrijft in dit boek zijn reizen naar Orkney en Shetland met veel aandacht voor de cultuur, natuur en historie van deze eilandengroepen. Ook uitermate goed te gebruiken als reisgids door de hoeveelheid informatie die hij geeft.
 
Paul Murton has long had a love of the Viking north - the island groups of Orkney and Shetland and the old counties of Caithness and Sutherland - which, for centuries, were part of the Nordic world as depicted in the great classic the Orkneyinga Saga. Today this fascinating Scandanavian legacy can be found everywhere - in physical remains, place-names, local traditions and folklore, and much else besides. This is a personal account of Paul's travels in the Viking north.
 
Full of observation, history, anecdote and encounters with those who live there, it also serves as a practical guide to the many places of interest. From a sing-along with the Shanty Yell Boys to fishing off Muckle Flugga, from sword dancing with the men of Papa Stour to a Norwegian pub crawl in Lerwick, Paul paints a vivid picture of these lands and their people, and explores their extraordinary rich heritage.

Wegenkaart landkaart Discover the Orkney Islands | Footprint maps

A group of islands close to the north coast of Scotland, Orkney has a visible history spanning more than 5500 years. From the world’s best preserved Neolithic settlement at Skara Brae, through numerous Bronze Age stone circles and burial mounds, Iron Age brochs, Medieval churches and cathedrals, to the remains from more recent events during two World Wars, there is almost too much to see.
 
The scenery is outstanding. A wild coastline (the Old Man of Hoy is one one islands most iconic images) is backed by a surprisingly rich and fertile countryside. From Mainland (the largest and most populated island) ferries run regular services to a further twelve islands (and three more can be reached by causeway). Wildlife is abundant, particularly sea birds and mammals such as seals, dolphins and whales. Most of the islands are low lying with good road networks, making exploring by car, bicycle or foot easy.

Reisgids Orkney | Odyssee Reisgidsen

Ten noordoosten van het Schotse vasteland ligt Orkney, een vruchtbare, groene archipel van zo'n zeventig eilanden en eilandjes. Wie de eilanden bezoekt wordt getroffen door de rust, de groene heuvels, de krijsende vogels op de kliffen, de verlaten baaien met brede zandstranden en het typische Schotse weer.

Vroegere eilandbewoners richtten vijfduizend jaar geleden monumentale bouwwerken op, in de vorm van imposante steencirkels, mysterieuze heiligdommen, afgelegen grafheuvels, en lieten er complete nederzettingen achter. Vandaar dat de eilandengroep ook het 'Egypte van het noorden' wordt genoemd.

Deze reisgids vertelt over al deze aspecten en biedt daarnaast wandel- en fietssuggesties en een hoop praktische informatie omtrent vervoer en verblijf.

Wandelgids Shetland | Pocket Mountains

Handige compacte wandelgids met 40 dagwandelingen. Deze gids bevat kleine kaartjes en leuke uitgebreide informatie over wat er langs de route te zien is. Goede wandelkaarten zijn echter we noodzakelijk voor deze tochten: de Ordnance Survey explorer maps of Landanger maps zijn zeer geschikt.

The most northerly of Britain's island groups, Shetland is so far removed from the rest of the UK that it usually appears as an inset on maps. Although relatively little known to those from outside the islands, Shetland is a magnificent terrain for walkers, especially those who love to really explore and get away from the beaten track. The coastal walking here includes some of the finest in the country, with superb cliffs, towering sea stacks, caves and natural arches seemingly around every corner.

Added to this is Shetland's better known claim to fame for its spectacular seabird colonies, huge gannetries, moorland packed with arctic and great skuas, arctic terns in the more sheltered spots, and everyone's favourite, the puffins. The islands also enjoy a dense population of otters, many seals, and a chance to see killer whales or other giants of the deep.

Beyond all this natural grandeur, Shetland's history is fascinating too. The archaeological attractions are much less known than those on Orkney, but sites such as Jarlshof have amazingly preserved remains from prehistory right up to more recent times. These include iron age villages, chambered cairns, viking longhouses, pictish carvings, and impressive brochs, including the most complete of all these iron-age defensive towers, on Mousa.

Wandelgids Orkney | Pocket Mountains

Handige compacte wandelgids met 40 dagwandelingen. Deze gids bevat kleine kaartjes en leuke uitgebreide informatie over wat er langs de route te zien is. Goede wandelkaarten zijn echter we noodzakelijk voor deze tochten: de Ordnance Survey explorer maps of Landanger maps zijn zeer geschikt.
 
The 40 walks in this guide range from a short stroll to hikes of several hours, but most can be completed in half a day or less. The majority are circular, several are lollipop-shaped and some require you to return by the same route. They all, however, end up back where they started, so you will not find yourself miles from your car. Each route is prefaced by an indication of the distance involved and the time it is likely to take. The latter is estimated on the time it took the author to walk the route (averaging around 3.5km per hour) before adding a little for tea, toilet and tourism stops. The timings should be regarded as a rough guide, and if you have to catch a bus or boat at the end of the walk, leave plenty of extra time!
 
Only on a couple of routes will you be asked to set off across the heather without a path to follow, and never without your immediate destination being in view in clear visibility. That said, walking in Orkney should not be underestimated and good visibility cannot be relied upon. The sketch maps are to help in planning your trip and are not sufficiently detailed to navigate by. It is advisable to carry the relevant Ordnance Survey map. Any compass directions are approximate, and lefts and rights are relative to the direction of travel. Where a walk involves crossing to a tidal island, it will be mentioned in the notes. Always ensure you get reliable advice on the state of the tides before crossing. If you get it wrong, you could have a cold, wet and lonely few hours before getting back across.

Wegenkaart landkaart 1 OS Road Map Northern Scotland, Orkney Shetland | Ordnance Survey

Een serie uitstekende wegenkaarten van Ordnance survey, de topografische dienst van Engeland. Alle 9 delen kennen een schaal van 1:250.000. Het kleurgebruik is uitbundig maar niet storend; integendeel, de hoogtes worden meteen duidelijk. De klassificatie van de wegen is behoorlijk uitgebreid, spoorlijnen, veerdiensten staan er op vermeld en met symbolen worden de toeristische bezienswaardigheden aangeven, maar ook bijvoorbeeld wandeltrails en campings. Bij dat laatste is handig om te weten dat als er alleen een symbooltje staat van een tent dit ook meestal echt een kleinere camping is in tegenstelling tot een symbool waar ook de caravan wordt weergegeven. Een klein register is er op gedrukt. 

Op deze kaart hebben de Orkney's en Shetlands een afwijkende schaal, 1:400.000.

Reisverhaal Shetland Diaries Otters, Orcas, Puffins and Wonderful People | Simon King

'If you love the Shetland Isles, or love the wildlife of the Scottish islands, then this is the book for you' -- Highland News 20100424 'The TV Shetland Diaries are now accompanied by a book, which sheds light on King's attachment to the natural world. As a little boy, the diaries reveal, games of hide and seek in the woods developed the patience he would later require to while away the hours in hides in the field or, as he says, happily "lost in a world of otter spraint".' -- Countryfile 20100424 'Brilliant observations of animal behaviour. Whether he's describing otters playing or gannets plunging off the cliffs of Noss, King slows down the action to enjoy every last, sinuous twist.' -- BBC Wildlife Magazine 20100424 'Heartwarming and candid' -- Daily Mail on WILD LIFE 20100424 'His book is packed with wild encounters' -- Independent on WILD LIFE 20100424 'This is a heart-warming, engagingly honest read' -- Scotsman on WILD LIFE 20100424 'Whether in front of the camera explaining the mysteries of the natural world ... or behind it as a skilled operator, King is one of the most engaging of natural history presenters and the prose in his autobiography, Wild Life, is every bit as addictive.' -- Scotsman on WILD LIFE 20100424 'Fascinating...Simon's passion is infectious, as anyone who's watched his programmes knows, and his enthusiasm pours from every word in his new book' -- Beautiful Britain on WILD LIFE 20100424

Wandelkaart 463 Explorer Orkney West Mainland | Ordnance Survey

Met zijn 4cm voor 1 km (2 ½ cm voor 1 mijl) schaal, is de OS Explorer kaartenserie de ideale en meest gedetailleerde kaartenreeks voor mensen die graag outdoor-activiteiten zoals fietsen, wandelen, paardrijden, klimmen en watersporten.

Deze kaart is nog gedetailleerder dan de 'gewone' Landranger maps. Voor- en achterzijde bedrukt! Zeker op de moors en andere natuurgebieden van onschatbare waarden met echt alle aspecten van het landschap op de kaart ingetekend. Zeer goede detailkaart met topografische ondergrond. Hierop zijn toeristische symbolen van bezienswaardigheden ingetekend, daarnaast staan bijvoorbeeld campings en jeugdherbergen vermeld en - voor wandelaars het belangrijkst - alle right of way paden en Lange afstands Wandelpaden zijn er op te vinden. De ideale kaart voor het wandelen in Engeland, Wales of Schotland.

These highly detailed maps show all the administrative boundaries, settlements as small as isolated farms, the road network down to unfenced roads and country tracks, and field boundaries (hedges and drystone walls) which make navigation across the countryside much easier. Steep gradients on roads are indicated. Various landmarks, e.g. powerlines, archaeological sites, windmills, churches and lighthouses are shown and additional graphics indicate natural terrain features such as cliffs, scree, mud and vegetation variations. The contour interval is 5 metres in the lower parts of the country and 10 metres in the uplands, and spot heights are marked. Each map covers an area of 30 x 20km (i.e. approx. 19 x 12 miles), with some double-sided maps covering more, as indicated in the individual descriptions. The maps are fully GPS compatible, with the National Grid shown at 1km intervals and latitude and longitude indicated by margin ticks at 1'.

The Explorer series has replaced the earlier, green-cover Pathfinder maps. The Explorer series is now complete and covers all of England, Wales & Scotland. Some sheets for popular areas like the National Parks are still branded as Outdoor Leisure (OL) maps, but are now included in this series as the cartography is the same as that in the Explorer Maps. The Explorer maps offer a substantial improvement on the Pathfinder series, with greater use of colour, larger area per map, and stronger emphasis on information for ramblers and tourists.

This series is ideal for walking and other outdoor pursuits and each map shows a large amount of information for ramblers and tourists. Public rights of way are shown (except in Scotland), together with other routes with public access: National Trails and Recreational Paths, permitted paths and bridleways, and selected cycle routes. Open access land created under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 is marked. Tourist information includes caravan and camp sites, Park & Ride locations, recreation/leisure/sport centres, museums, historic buildings, English Heritage and National Trust sites, rural pubs, etc. The map legend is in English only, except for the tourist information content which is also in French and German

Reisgids Scottish Island Bagging | Vertebrate Graphics

Erg mooie gids met aandacht voor 154 Schotse eilanden die de moeite waard zijn om te bezoeken.
 
Scottish Island Bagging by Helen and Paul Webster, founders of Walkhighlands, is a guide to the magical islands of Scotland.
 
Focusing on the ninety-nine islands that have regular trips or means of access for visitors, plus fifty-five other islands which have no regular transport but are still of significant size or interest, the authors have described the best ways to experience each one. Of the islands featured, many are household names – Skye, Lewis, Bute – while some, such as the isolated St Kilda archipelago and the remote Sula Sgeir, will be unknown to all but a hardcore few.
 
When it comes to things to see and do, the islands of Scotland have it all. Wildlife enthusiasts can watch out for otters, orcas and basking sharks, while birdwatchers in particular are spoilt: look out for the rare corncrake on Islay, sea eagles on Mull, or sight puffins, gannets, storm petrels and many other seabirds on any number of islands – although beware the divebombing bonxies.
 
Foodies can sample Arran or Westray cheese, the many islands’ world-renowned seafood or learn about the whisky making process and sample a wee dram on a distillery tour.
 
While the human history may not stretch back in time as far as the geology of these ancient lands, it is rich and varied: visit the 5,000-year-old Neolithic village of Skara Brae on Orkney, or Mackinnon’s Cave on Mull, following in the footsteps of Samuel Johnson and James Boswell. You can even stay in the house on Jura where George Orwell wrote Nineteen Eighty-Four.
 
Hillwalkers can bag a Munro, walk the wild clifftops or take in the sights, or you could just escape from it all on one of the dozens of beautiful and deserted beaches – before joining the locals for a ceilidh into the wee hours.
 
Well served by ferries and other transport links, getting around is easy. You could even take the world’s shortest scheduled flight. In Scottish Island Bagging, let Helen and Paul Webster be your guides to these enchanting isles.
