Day Walks on the Isle of Skye

Day Walks on the Isle of Skye

authors: Helen and Paul Webster
This excellent guidebook features 20 walking routes on the Isle of Skye between 3.5 and 14.5 miles in length. The walks are spread across the Isle with one walk on the neighbouring Isle of Raasay. Researched and written by experienced and knowledgeable authors, founders of the 'Walkinghighlands' website, the walks explore the rugged mountains and wildlife-rich coastline of the islands.

The guidebook is lavishly illustrated with stunning colour photographs. Each of the routes includes Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 scale mapping with the route highlighted. The detailed directions text is written in numbered paragraphs with the numbers shown on the maps, so you always know where you are on the route. Each walk entry begins with a description of the route and its features plus basic facts including distance, start point with grid reference, total ascent, estimated time, and refreshment options.
