Walking the Western Isles Guidebook

Walking the Western Isles Guidebook

author: Mary Welsh
The Western Isles, known more romantically as the Outer Hebrides, lie 120 miles off the north-western coast of Scotland and stretch for 130 miles from the Butt of Lewis to Barra Head. Here the walker in search of tranquillity and solitude can wander all day over dramatic hills and awesome moorland enjoying the magnificent seascapes without meeting another person. There are hundreds of islands in the archipelago varying greatly in size.

This book includes 40 walks covering six of the main islands: Lewis, Harris, North Uist, Benbeccula, South Uist, and Barra. Readers can select from routes ranging from the simple stroll to the exhilarating high-level ridge walk. All walks are delightfully annotated with comments about the flora and fauna, with attractive accompanying pen and ink illustrations of landscape, flora, and fauna. The book also gives informative explanations of the history of the places described in the walks and provides information about the most interesting places to visit in the area.

Step by step navigation instructions are provided in numbered paragraphs and a box gives a summary of the type of walk, plus distance and estimated time. The clear hand drawn maps compliment the text and show the paragraph numbers.
