November 2019 edition: Britain's Amazing Islands
They’re full of great things, like nature reserves, cliffs, hidden coves and mountains! But which island has seaweed-eating sheep? Or hairy snails? Or the most famous rockpools, packed with creatures? Or a perfectly preserved ancient village that’s older than the pyramids? We’ll tell you which islands are puffin-packed. We’ll see why people count seals on the Farne Islands, why Eigg is the most eco-friendly island of all – and lots more!
Many of these islands are uninhabited by humans. Should we be allowed to visit them or should we leave the wildlife alone? Should we keep taking boat trips to see the whales and dolphins, or is that harmful, too? Let's have a debate!
Dare to investigate the islands' incredible folklore? They are said to be full of mythical creatures, including a shape-shifting water horse, the hairy buggane, and the ‘dog of the dead’ of the Channel Islands, with its glowing red eyes? Don’t worry, none of these creatures are real. WE HOPE!
