The Isle of Skye is the most scenically awe-inspiring of Scotland's many islands; for many walkers and climbers it is a promised land. It is a place of elemental forces, a land that man has barely scratched. Now in its third edition, this guide visits all corners of the island as well as the renowned Cuillin. Updated and in full color with extensive photographs and maps, it describes hard, demanding days as tough as anything in Britain and walks in wonderfully isolated situations. It includes high mountain routes, lonely lochans, coastal cliffs, forests, strange pinnacles and rough gabbro rock.But it is a walking, not a climbing guide. The skills required are up to straightforward scrambling, but the walking can be demanding and 'arduous'.
