Scotland and its islands encompass more than 10,000 miles of breathtaking coastline.
The 100 routes outlined by Andrew Dempster take in the quaint fishing ports, long sun-bleached strands and vast golf links of the east coast; the grand Gothic cliffs, natural arches and storm-tossed seastacks that comprise much of the fractured edge of the Atlantic; the kaleidoscopic wildflower carpet of the Western Isles machair; the romantic castles and Clearance settlements of Skye; and myriad idyllic secluded beaches and breathtaking clifftop vantage points.
This unique guide covers the whole spectrum, from short hour-long beach strolls to serious full-day hikes that require mountain gear and total commitment.
Compiled in a user-friendly format and containing maps and illustrations throughout, "100 Classic Coastal Walks in Scotland" provides a wealth of walking possibilities for anyone with an interest in outdoor pursuits, with many of the walks also suitable for children.
