Paula leads a walk from her favouite walking book

On of our recommended walking books is called Walking the Isle of Skye, sadly it’s a place we have not been to yet although it is on Pinnacle Walking Holidays wish list.

Our friends, who love Skye, have this book and they think it’s an excellent walking book.

They purchased it from, they sell such a great range of walking books for the UK, I have looked through it many times and it’s on my Santa’s Christmas list.

Below is the introduction written by, but you really need to view its stunning mountain photos. There are scrambles as well as walks; it’s a must to add to your walking books.

Walking Books Description of Walking the Isle of Skye

Guidebook to 87 walks and scrambles on the Isle of Skye, in the Hebrides, just off the northwest Scottish mainland. The guide visits all corners of the island as well as the renowned Cuillin. Covered here are walks and scrambles in Sleat and South-East Skye, Strath, Minginish, Duirinish, Waternish and Trotternish. There is a selection of routes for all abilities, from novice walker to experienced scrambler.

Each route description highlights local historical and geological points of interest along the routes . OS mapping and colour photographs illustrate each walk in the book. Using digital mapping and GPS technology, and taking account of changes brought about by recent forestry work, the guidebook includes demanding days as tough as anything in Britain. Wonderfully isolated situations over high mountains and strange pinnacles, past lonely lochans, along cliffs and through forests. Skye has some of the most awe-inspiring scenery of Scotland’s many islands. A place of whose surface man has barely scratched, with almost supernatural charisma.
