I was very touched and happy when I just found this review of “Travels in the Scottish Islands” on Amazon.uk.
“This is an absolute gem of a book, a delight to read. As a frequent visitor to the Isle of Skye and Outer Hebrides myself, it is very interesting to find how the author reacts to many things that I have experienced, people I know and life in the islands. The book is a series of short pieces about diverse things, but with a geographical thread. I strongly recommend this to anyone planning a trip for the first time, regular visitors or locals alike. I await her book on Orkney and Shetland with interest. As an Orcadian who also knows Shetland well it will be very interesting to see her take on the Northern Isles.”

«Kirsti Jareg, author of Øyene i Vest (The Islands in the West) hopes not so much to ride the wave of interest for Scotland, as to raise its swell into something more important: a new awareness of the strength of ancient bonds.» (Andrew Boyle, The Guardian)
Kirsti Jaregs bok «Øyene i vest. Hebridene, Orknøyene og Shetland» …. gir oss lyst til å seile dit igjen….Denne boken gir jeg derfor terningkast 6.» (Henrich Nissen-Lie, Seilas)
Barra, Outer Hebrides, Scotland is a beautiful island, small enough to cycle around in some hours, big enough to get a wee bit lost in the hills among sheep and ancient graves.
What to do: Cycling, clearwater kayaking, swimming for the brave, heaps of shellfish to grill, fun pub. people and music – also on Sundays. Boat trips to islands with more or less the same fate as St Kilda without being dramaqueenish about it. Seal- and whalewatching.How to get there? From Oban, South Uist or flights from the mainland landing on a tidal beach – uahhhiii!
