After two decades exploring the Western coast and mountains of the British Isles, the historian and nature writer David Gange set out to travel the seaboard in the course of a year. This coastline spans just eight-hundred miles as the crow flies, but the complex folds of its firths and headlands stretch more than ten-thousand. Even those who circumnavigate Britain by kayak tend to follow the shortest route; the purpose of this journey was to discover these coastlines by seeking out the longest. Travelling by kayak, on foot and at the end of a rope, Gange encounters wildcats, basking sharks, and vast colonies of seabirds, as well as rich and diverse coastal communities.
