Cicerone Guide Book: The Hebrides

50 Walking and Backpacking Routes, by Peter Edwards

Inspirational guidebook to 50 varied walking and backpacking routes on the Hebrides, featuring classics such as the Skye Cuillin and the Paps of Jura, but also many lesser-known routes on Jura, Scarba, Islay, Colonsay, Rum, Eigg, Canna, Muck, Coll, Tiree, Mull, Skye, Raasay, Harris, Lewis, Berneray, North Uist, South Uist, Barra and St Kilda.

Inspirational guidebook to walking in Scotland's Hebrides islands. 50 adventurous walks on well-known and remote islands; from Syke, Mull, Rum, the Uists and Barra, Ulva, Iona, Eigg and Muck and more besides. 

Most of the walks provide a full day for experienced walkers, with a few multi-day adventures as well as some shorter routes. 

The terrain is often rough, rugged and pathless, while waymarking and public transport can, in many places, be hard to find. 

The challenge of wild walking, and the self-reliance needed to discover the best of the Hebrides, make the islands all the more appealing for adventurous walkers.

The walks also include Hebrides classics, like the Skye and Rum Cuillins, the Paps of Jura and full circuits of smaller islands. 

Each walk combines clear route description with mapping and spectacular photography, while also advising on the route's facilities, public transport access, length and terrain. 

The result is a collection of the very best walks with which to uncover the wild and rugged beauty of the Hebrides.
