This compact book is an essential guide to the mystical Skellig islands. These islands, appearing like two jagged pyramids rising out of the ocean, lie seven miles off the west coast of Ireland. Both entirely uninhabited, the larger, Skellig Michael, contains extensive remains of an Early Christian monastic site. The other island, Small Skellig, is a celebrated bird sanctuary that includes thousands of gannets and the rarely-seen puffin.
