Description

The North-West Highlands, which for the purposes of this book includes all the Scottish mainland north and west of the Great Glen together with the Isle of Skye, is the last area in Britain which could truthfully be described as genuinely wild. This guide to 24 of the finest walks in this gloriously lonely and often breathtakingly beautiful landscape is aimed, not at climbers, who are already well catered for, but at walkers who wish to enjoy the wild country and, while prepared to tackle rough terrain, do not necessarily have the skills and equipment that may be needed on the higher hills. The walks, which range from 6 to 17 miles (9.5 to 27 km) in length are mostly circular and in all cases begin and end at sites with space for parking and access to public transport. Some of the routes, though by no means all, run through land owned by the National Trust for Scotland. The landscapes through which they pass range from the tightly packed hills and glens of Ardgour, Moidart and Knoydart in the south to the wild moors of the extreme north over which a few peaks like Suilven, Canisp and Quinag tower in splendid isolation. Chris Townsend guides his readers with an infectious enthusiasm, sound advice and knowledgeable observations of the wildlife and geology of the Highlands. The book also includes a glossary of Gaelic and Scots words and a Useful Information section listing organisations and websites that may be useful to visiting walkers.
