Product Description

Details

A guide to the best walking on Scotland's remote Southern Hebrides - Jura, Scarba, Islay, Colonsay and Oronsay - featuring one classic 5-day wilderness trek along the west coast of Jura and 14 day walks across the islands, include a round of the iconic Paps of Jura, from bases such as Port Askaig, Port Ellen and Scalasaig. Jura, Islay and Colonsay offer some of wildest scenery in the British Isles - but the terrain is tough and almost entirely pathless. The second edition of this guide opens up the area even further to the experienced walker, describing many previously unpublished routes. The west coast of Jura boasts outstanding geological features, stunning beaches and abundant wildlife. Islay is lower-lying and more developed but also has many kilometres of scenic coastline and is particularly famous for its birdlife, its historical sites and, of course, its distilleries. Scarba is rugged and mountainous. And Colonsay is a gem with a tranquil character all its own, echoing much of the natural splendour of its neighbours. As well as detailed descriptions of 14 walks across the three islands, this book is packed with information about their natural and cultural histories, and illustrated with OS maps and colour photographs.
