Rathlin, An Island Oddessy
Lying 6 miles off the north coast of Northern Ireland, Rathlin is eight miles long and less than one mile wide. It is home to, amongst others, puffins, razorbills, guillemots and kittiwakes; from late April to early August the spectacular cliffs on the island are alive with thousands of sea birds. Botanists and nature lovers alike return year after year for the beautiful variety of flora and fauna to be seen.
In Rathlin, an Island Odyssey, Bernard Davey returns with this comprehensive guide to Rathlin Island, with full colour photographs of landmarks such as the ‘upside down’ West Lighthouse and the Manor House on the pierside at Church Bay, pretty landscapes, and detailed shots of the many birds which inhabit the island.
In his own inimitable style, Bernard takes you on a variety of walks and a boat trip, pointing out places of note and interest along the way, which will allow you to see much of the Rathlin which has captured his imagination and his heart.
