Skellig : Experience the Extraordinary

Categories: ,


This is the story of two of the world’s most stunning and unspoiled islands, Skellig Michael and Small Skellig, which lie off the coast of Kerry. Des Lavelle explores the extraordinary, isolated Early Christian monastic settlement with its stone `beehive’ huts. He describes the abundant bird life, including the huge colony of gannets, and tells of the history, legend, geology, plant life, the lighthouse, the seals and the underwater world.  A comprehensive, accessible and beautiful book on a unique and fascinating place.
