"This book shares my favourite day walks and adventures around 50 islands off mainland Britain and, in the true sense of islandeering, explores the coast along the way. It gives details of sea caves, cliffs and geos to explore, secret beaches, wild swims, and the huge diversity of cultural and wildlife highlights that every island has to offer." Lisa Drewe, author

Beautiful photography and maps combine with engaging travel which writing charts historical, geographical and wildlife highlights, as well as the author’s own adventures and mishaps.

Tips for coasteering, scrambling, camping, wild swimming and kayaking.
