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. Above this is the indefinable, almost supernatural charisma that evokes a deep and abiding affection amongst those privileged to share Skye's secrets.
This new edition continues the tradition of the first by visiting all corners of the island as well as the renowned Cuillin. Updated and in full colour with extensive photographs and maps, it includes hard demanding days as tough as anything in Britain and Wales 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, and the skills required are up to straightforward scrambling, but the walking can be demanding and arduous.
