A Walker's Guide to the Isle of Wight by Martin Collins
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Isle of Wight contains some of the finest countryside walking in the whole of the UK, with much to offer, whatever your ability. The Island's concentration of diverse landscapes, historical sites, Victorian seaside resorts and sleepy villages, in an area measuring only 13 miles (21 km) by 23 miles (37km) at its widest point, means that although distances are large enough to provide a challenge, even short routes never lack variety. This manageable scale combined with a good infrastructure of footpaths and bridleways make it a ramblers paradise - not to mention the island's enviable sunshine record. These walks have been specially devised to take advantage of the island's most outstanding scenery and amenities. This book contains 32 walks of varying standards, comprising "Ten of the Best Island Walks", "The Official Trails", "The Coastal Path", "The Vectis 8 Trail" and "12 Short Walks", plus useful addresses.
