Description
The fame of Skye, the most scenically awe-inspiring of Scotland's many islands, is widespread; you either love it, or hate it. There is no neutrality.


For walkers and climbers this is the Promised Land, a place of raw elemental forces, a land barely scratched by man. Over-riding everything hangs an indefinable, almost supernatural, charisma that evokes a deep and abiding affection among those privileged to share Skye's secrets. To go in search of those secrets there is no better way than on foot, and in this collection of walks, Terry Marsh visits all corners of the island, not just the well-known haunts.


This new edition, in full colour, continues the tradition of the first, by visiting all corners of the island, including the renowned Cuillin. Walks range from simple outings not far from civilisation to rugged, hard and demanding days, as tough as anything in Britain, often in isolated situations. The walks in this book will suit all tastes, and embrace high mountains, lonely lochans, coastal cliffs and forests.


But every walk is just that, a walk, and does not require rock climbing or scrambling skills beyond the most fundamental. Many are very demanding and arduous walks; others are the sweetest days out imaginable. Skye provides them all.
