About the Author

James Proctor first visited the Faroe Islands in 1992 on board the Smyril ferry sailing from Aberdeen and has been back and forth ever since. Accompanied half of the way by a pod of dolphins and buffeted by gale force winds and stormy seas during the rest of the journey, James's love affair with the North Atlantic got off to a flying start. Whilst working as the BBC's Scandinavia correspondent, he produced a series of television and radio reports about the islands, concentrating on the issues of independence and whaling. James now divides his time as a freelance travel writer between the south of France and his home in North Yorkshire. He has also written Bradt's Lapland and West Sweden guides and co-written other guides to Iceland, Reykjavík, Sweden and Finland.
