Did you discover us when you watched the hit TV show Extraordinary Escapes with Sandi Toksvig?

Extraordinary Escapes the book, by Gemma Bowes has just been released and showcases many of the hidden treasures that the UK has to offer, featuring the unique and characterful holiday homes from the first series of hit Channel 4 series, plus many more. ⁠

Holiday Inspiration

So if you’re still looking for holiday inspiration for this year (and beyond) – we can’t recommend a better book to start with!

In the book you can explore amazing homes around the country, with a guide to the landscape, history and architecture of each one. Whether you’re seeking a rural idyll or a remote romantic retreat, the beautifully designed and lovingly restored properties in the book include a Scottish castle, a converted lighthouse cottage (that’s us!), cosy treehouses and an artist’s mill.⁠

Slow Travel

With a foreword by Sandi Toksvig, Extraordinary Escapes will evoke memories of childhood holidays and reinforce the benefits of slow living, glorious natural surroundings and mindful travel, inspiring you to look closer to home for that truly special escape.⁠ As you may already know, we’re very strong advocates of slow travel here on Eilean Sionnach.

The book is available to order now on Book Depository for free worldwide deliveries:
