This third edition of Terry Marsh’s walking and scrambling guide to Skye, the Hebrides, northwest Scotland, updated using digital mapping and GPS. 87 walks and scrambles in Sleat and South-East Skye, Strath, Minginish, Duirinish, Waternish and Trotternish for all abilities. Each route describes local historical and geological points of interest.

Activities:
walking, scrambling.
Seasons:
The weather on Skye is variable but tends to be fairest in May/June and September/October, also the times that midges are less abundant. Recently, there has been excellent weather in February and November, too. Go prepared for cold, wind and rain, and then anything else is a bonus.
Centres:
Portree, Broadford, Sligachan, Uig, Dunvegan, Glen Brittle.
Difficulty:
Almost all of the routes covered demand a good level of fitness and ability to travel safely in wild countryside in changeable weather and use map and compass; some of the walks are arduous and demanding; some scrambles involve exposure and technical ability.
Must See:
If you’re a good scrambler, you must try the widely-famed Cuillin but there is also the outstanding coastal scenery and the wacky pinnacles of Storr and the Quiraing and wilderness in abundance – Skye is all you could want it to be.

The Isle of Skye has some of the most awe-inspiring scenery of Scotland’s many islands; for many walkers and climbers it is a promised land. It is a place of elemental forces whose surface man has barely scratched, with almost supernatural charisma.

The third edition of this popular walking and scrambling guidebook visits all corners of the island as well as the renowned Cuillin. Updated using digital mapping and GPS technology, and taking account of changes brought about by recent forestry work, it includes demanding days as tough as anything in Britain in wonderfully isolated situations over high mountains and strange pinnacles, past lonely lochans, along cliffs and through forests.
