Lochs and Lights : The West Coast of Mainland Scotland
By Patrick Roach
'Lochs and Lights' is one of a series of attractive tours of coastlines using views from the air. This addition to the range covers the mainland part of the West coast of Scotland, one of the most attractive sailing areas in the British Isles. Starting from the estuaries of Galloway on the Solway Firth, the tour leads northwards across the Firth of Clyde, taking in Ardnamurchan, Oban, Loch Linnhe, Mallaig and past Skye to reach the lonely and dramatic cliffs of Cape Wrath.
Patrick Roach's outstanding aerial photographs, taken in a typical range of weather and tidal conditions, are matched by a commentary and description by West coast based yachting journalist, Gordon Buchanan. These wonderful views from the air give an idea of the drama and variety in the long and complex Scottish coast, and for anyone at sea as well as walkers and other landside visitors, 'Lochs and Lights' is the ideal companion.
