Britain is one of our top travel destinations and as our dollar increases in value getting to know Britain properly is becoming top on the agenda of some travellers. Aimed squarely at the older and slightly better heeled traveller Remote Britain is a companion guide to the most interesting parts of the country. These are the places where the mature traveller wishes to go – from the Scilliesin the very south and Shetland Island at the far north.Take the book along with you or read it in your armchair for lots of insights, some extraordinary people, hotels to love and hate, cafes from hell, even the most eerie place in Britain. The book is full of interviews with interesting people expressing their own views and of course so does the author himself – particularly colourfully in the Chapter In the Footsteps of the Queen Mother. You can lose yourself in this book for many days and emerge knowing much more about the real Britain – with its fascinations, history, oddities and wonders, than you can ever discover elsewhere.
