Produced in association with the Ramblers, this walking guide covers the beautiful Isle of Skye and combines detailed route descriptions with information on the local history and wildlife. This famous corner of the Scottish Highlands and Islands is home to a spectacular variety of mountain landscapes and dramatic coastlines. There is also a wealth of fascinating places to explore: from caves, sea stacks, and headlands to arches, waterfalls, and castles. The introduction gives information about the topography, geology and history of the area and describes the flora and fauna inhabiting it. The main section of the book comprises 30 walks, each one including a key illustrating principal features such as level of difficulty and type of terrain, a route profile indicating altitude and distances as well as a fact file summarizing useful information such as start and finish points, duration, safety advice, and points of interest. Illustrated with color maps from the Ordnance Survey, each walk is then described in detail with clear, easy-to-follow instructions. As well as route descriptions, the text gives the history of the main landmarks along the way plus information on the natural history of the area and is accompanied by stunning color photographs. This updated edition includes an overview map displaying starting points for the walks, color codes indicating the level of difficulty, and a key to the symbols used in the text and on the route maps.
