Their names bespeak a rich and varied past, belying their paucity of notice by historians. From the Norse Hjaltland comes the modern Shetland: islands nominally Scottish, steeped in Nordic culture, closer to the Arctic Circle than to London. Important neolithic sites at Skara Brae and Maes Howe in the Orkneys wallow in anonymity next to Stonehenge. Holy Iona, island center of early Christianity; the Isle of Man, former seat of rule over the Irish Sea; Anglesey and Islay, homes of forgotten Medieval courts at Aberffraw and Loch Finlaggan - these are just a few of the more than 6,000 islands that form the archipelago known as the British Isles. Inhabited for millennia and today home to half a million people, the offshore British Isles demonstrate that Great Britain is far more than just England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. This history of Britain's other islands sheds light on a fundamental but neglected aspect of the past.~Focusing on the eight islands or chains that have long supported substantial populations, it tells the stories of the Shetlands, the Orkneys, the Hebrides, the Channel Islands, the Scilly Isles and the Isles of Man and Wight. From their earliest settlement, to Roman, Norse and Norman occupation, to the struggle to maintain their unique identities in today's world, the lives of these islands are a fascinating slice of European history. A chapter is devoted to each, and maps of the islands are included. Appendices provide geographical descriptions, population statistics, political and economic profiles. A select bibliography and index are included.

The Raad ny Foillan, Way of the Gull, is a 96-mile footpath around the island. Splendid scenery is encountered throughout, from the rugged sea cliffs and mountain moorland in the south to the glens, beaches and dunes of the north. The path passes sites of historical interest, colourful fishing villages, historic towns and peaceful havens. Two other walks are described - The Millennium Way follows the ancient route of the kings from Ramsey to Castletown, whilst The Herring Way takes a traditional route from Peel to Castletown. These cross the hills of the island's interior and can be combined to give an interesting route. The walks are described in easy stages with suggestions for accommodation en route. The introduction outlines the best times for visiting and walking on the island as well as noting all the detailed practical information needed for a successful trip.

The scope for walking on the Isle of Man is considerable. Being an island, and a smallish one at that, many walks touch upon the coastline at some point, and it is probably true to say that on every walk in this book you can see the sea at some stage, although each of the 40 walks has its own very distinctive flavour. This guide provides walkers with all the necessary information to ensure that any visit to the island is well spent. A comprehensive introduction provides information on the Isle of Man in the 21st century and in the past, as well as on the island's flora and fauna and on how to make the most of the walking opportunities. The guide includes information on getting to and around the island and a comprehensive appendix including longer waymarked walks, useful addresses and organizations, bibliography and a glossary of Manx place names and terms.
