Extra Chapters

All these additional 'Extra Chapters' to the 'Photographer’s Guide to the Isle of Skye and the North West of Scotland' I will be posting below, use a different layout to the 79 chapters in my Guide Book, as all those chapters were specifically designed to fit into a 270 page 6 x 9 book format, using large scale maps with individual route and way point indicators, GPS coordinates and local area Post Codes etc, whereas these accompanying and additional chapters, are being designed specifically for this web site and where I can then use direct links to online maps and street views etc. Also these 'Extra Chapters' will not be laid out in any particular route order like in the book, as the area of the rest Scotland I now intend to cover in these pages is far too big to do that, so instead I will simply add them to this site in the order that I come to write them. Enjoy!
