Charles Tait Guide Books

The original Orkney Guide Book was first published in 1991. Through its various editions the book has been critically acclaimed and has become the visitor's "bible" to Orkney. The 2013 series includes the North Highlands of Scotland, Shetland, the Outer Hebrides and Orkney. These books feature Charles' work and are a distillation of his knowledge of each area gained through extensive travels, photography and research. They are designed to maximise the visitor's appreciation of his or her time during a stay and to be authoritative and interesting without being wordy. New editions appear as stocks run low.
