The 2nd edition of this excellent guide has been produced in full colour complete with some beautiful photography and clear maps of every walk provided by the Ordnance Survey.
The 85 walks take you to all corners of the Isle of Skye, and range in difficulty from simple and short outings close to civilisation to to rugged, hard and demanding days, as tough as anything in Britain, often in isolated situations. The book includes high mountain routes, lonely lochans, coastal cliffs, forests, strange pinnacles and rough gabbro rock. 24 of the 85 walks are on or around the Cuillin Ridge.
The fame of Skye, the most scenically awe-inspiring of Scotland's many islands, is widespread. For walkers and climbers this is the Promised Land, a place of raw elemental forces, a land barely scratched by man. Over-riding everything hangs an indefinable, almost supernatural, charisma that evokes a deep and abiding affection among those privileged to share Skye's secrets.
The walks in this book will suit all tastes, and embrace high mountains, lonely lochans, coastal cliffs and forests. But every walk is just that, a walk, and does not require rock climbing or scrambling skills beyond the most fundamental. Many are very demanding and arduous walks; others are the sweetest days out imaginable. Skye provides them all.
