I’ve got a new book – Day walks on the Isle of Skye by Helen and Paul Webster.
It’s really excellent – I’d thoroughly recommend it for those of you who want to walk for a full day and have the energy for a ” good walk”. The walks themselves are clearly set out, with a realistic description. What I particularly like is that although it includes the well known walks, it also takes you to more remote places.
Even in the 40 Walks on Skye book which a lot of people use, and which is excellent, there are many walks where you wont meet another soul (so don’t believe all the Skye is crammed you won’t be able to breathe nonsense you might read from time to time.)
Add in the physical challenge of the walks and you’ll be guaranteed some grand days appreciating the peace and beauty of our island. The photographs are inspiring and the maps will ensure you are at no risk of getting lost.
If I’m honest, the dug’s days of going for 7 hour walks are over, the little legs, the grey hair and the expanding tummy mean that we both take it more gently these days. But I shall be getting a few more of these fabulous guides in for our more energetic guests.
