The Society’s latest publication - The Swiss Lakes - Their Scenery and Ships by Martin Fisher - with 140 pages in A4 format and 398 colour photos is now available, profusely illustrated it describes about 200 of the lakes in Switzerland. The first half of the book describes the 20 lakes which enjoy scheduled boat services: the lake setting, the lakeside communities large and small, the boat routes and the boats which are used, be they hundred year-old paddle steamers or modern motor vessels. The second half of the book provides a brief description, with at least one photograph for each, of about 180 other lakes. These include the famous and the obscure; the Alpine or the low-lying; and vary from deep reservoirs in harsh surroundings to quiet havens for wildlife in idyllic settings. The book is available from SRS Sales and our on-line shop. The price is £17.00 or £15.00 at exhibitions.

Now available through the Sales Page and On-Line Shop are the revised and updated versions of Swiss Travel Guide No.1 - Bern and the Bernese Oberland and Swiss Travel Guide No. 8, Basle and North West Switzerland, with many new photos. The price remains unchanged at £7.00 including UK postage.
