Isle of Skye

40 Coast and Country Walks

Also includes walks on Raasay

The Isle of Skye (or An t-Eilean Sgitheanach in its native Gaelic tongue) occupies an almost mythical place in the minds of many Scots. Romantic castles, magnificent seascapes, the alpine peaks of the Cuillin Ridge and scattered white crofters’ cottages, the island has all these and more.

This book features 40 moderate walks on Skye and neighbouring Raasay that take in many celebrated classics but reveals hidden gems too. Written by Skye residents Paul and Helen Webster, these routes explore both the wild and gentler sides of this dramatic landscape.
