This guidebook describes 87 of the best walks and scrambles on the Isle of Skye.
Not only limited to the popular routes on the Black Cuillin or Skye's 12 Munros, the guide offers a comprehensive selection of routes in all areas of the island; in Sleat and South-East Skye, Strath, Minginish, Duirinish, Waternish and Trotternish.
The routes range in length from 2 to 23km, so while there are opportunities for novice walkers, routes can also be combined for longer trails and difficult scrambles.
Skye can delight walkers and scramblers at every turn, from sea stacks to fell tops; corries to rugged cliffs and plenty in between.
Walkers on Skye should be prepared for strenuous trails and wilderness, as well as changeable weather, navigation, and - depending on the route - scrambling skills.
However, the routes in this guide range in length from 2 to 23km, so while there are opportunities for novice walkers, routes can also be combined for longer trails and difficult scrambles. Alongside detailed descriptions and OS maps for every route, the guidebook also includes practical information essential to making the most out of a visit to Skye. From travel to and around the island, to advice on accommodation, where to stock up on supplies and who to call in emergencies.
The result is an excellent companion to exploring the best of Skye.
