Everything about this publication proclaims its usefulness. Its size ... allows it to slip easily into a cagoule pocket. The spiral binding permits it to be left open at an appropriate page. It is printed on waterproof material and so can survive hostile weather. The layout of its contents is both attractive and well thought out. ... The book is illustrated by excellent, full-colour photographs throughout.

The coast is generally unspoilt with fine beach and cliff scenery ... A welcome companion to walking in a very attractive but unfrequented area of Scotland.
