About this book

The Orkney Islands are a special place, both in terms of their natural history and human inhabitants. Their northerly position provides a major land fall for migratory birds. In human terms, traditional lifestyles of fishing and crafting vie with modern industries, such as oil, leading to conflict of both human and wildlife conservation dimensions. This book paints a broad picture of the natural and manmade environments.
