‘You will be amazed, enthralled and certainly amused by the tales that Duncan recounts. You will raise an eyebrow or two (more than once!). …a unique insight into contemporary exploration. Let the entertainment begin…’ Extract from the introduction by Martyn Farr

Caithness, the most northerly county in mainland Britain, is one of the richest cultural landscapes in Europe. The relative geographical isolation of the area, traditional landholding and the survival of large estates, combined with the use of flagstone as the main building material since earliest times, has ensured the survival of a wide range of monuments in a profusion unequalled elsewhere in Scotland.

This is a much-needed update on the Buzzard which today is the most conspicuous and widely distributed diurnal raptor across most of Britain. Buzzards have somehow weathered persecution, pesticide pollution and loss or reduction of prey and it is now pleasing to note that in some regions it has been common for some while to see half a dozen or more of these big hawks on the wing, displaying together in Spring, or assemblies of several dozen juveniles feeding in fields.

Also more great books to look out for...
