Isle of Skye Outstanding Circular Walks

Isle of Skye Outstanding Circular Walks

by: Terry Marsh
This Pathfinder guide describes 150 miles of fabulous walking from lazy-day strolls on the white sandy beaches of Dunvegan to a demanding but spectacular ascent of the Cuillin ridge, with outings to the unmissable rock pinnacles of the Storr and the Quiraing, and the plummeting coastal cliffs and stacks of MacLeod's Maidens.

Clear and easy to follow directions are accompanied by detailed Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 scale Explorer maps and specially commissioned photographs. With 28 routes to choose from, colour coded for difficulty, and all tried and tested by seasoned walkers and varying from extended strolls to exhilarating hikes, there is a walk to suit all situations.

The guide introduces you to the area and highlights the most scenic walks. Each walk entry begins with a box giving start, distance, height gain, time, parking and route terrain. This is followed by a short overview highlighting the route's main features. The following detailed route finding instructions have paragraphs numbered corresponding to numbers on the OS map making navigation safe and easy. There are GPS references for all the route waypoints and the route is highlighted in yellow on the full colour map. The guide also includes information on where to park, good pubs and places of interest along the route.
