Product Description

Buying futures - From chunks of woodland to whole islands, community buy-outs have become increasingly commonplace in rural Scotland, particularly in the Highlands and islands. But to what extent does this new model of land ownership benefit local people and visitors? Catriona Ross investigates

Secret underworld - With such matchless mountain scenery to be found in the Highlands, it may seem perverse of people to seek adventure below ground. Alan Jeffreys explains the lure of caving, while Ritchie Simpson tells of the euphoria when his team discovered a brand new cave system in Applecross recently

Framing Skye - Creating photographic memories worthy of the island’s renowned beauty and drama – this is Australian visitor Lorellie Bow’s goal as she explores Skye’s incomparable landscape on foot

Explore: Arran and Ayrshire
All along the Ayrshire coast - Underrated but exceptional, the Ayrshire coast is a diverse landscape with a wealth of natural features and an important historical legacy. It is best explored on foot, argues Keith Fergus, whose images capture the subtle beauty of this coastline

Take your pick - From long-distance walks to staying at a Buddhist island retreat, here’s our pick of the very best activities and adventures to enjoy across Arran and Ayrshire
