Ring of Brodgar, Orkney

I recently read a book about Orkney called Orkney Twilight (then its follow ups The Salt March and The Dark Isle). I loved the books, but what I loved even more is the location, the remoteness, the history, and the life.

Purely because of these books I am now planning a trip to Orkney (hopefully later this summer) with both Matt and Whisky; it’ll be a first time in Orkney for all of us.

It’s got me thinking about how much I love to read books about places I am traveling to, so I have started compiling a list of other books about Orkney.

I am currently reading:
Hebridean Storm: Book One of The Matt Macaulay Trilogy

Other books in TBR list:

Do you enjoy reading books on places you travel to? Do you have a favourite book about Orkney I should read? I’d love to hear from you.
