With high hills that sweep down to white sandy beaches beside the Atlantic, the Isles of Harris and Lewis in the Outer Hebrides provide one of the last remaining refuges for walkers looking for spectacular scenery far from the madding crowd.
Routes include a high-level horseshoe around An Cliseam and its neighbours on the Isle of Harris, half-day circular walks around the famous stone circles of Calanais on the Isle of Lewis and the Butt of Lewis lighthouse, and lengthy incursions into areas of wilderness visited only by the Golden Eagle and the mountain hare.
Much of the Long Island, as it’s known, is remote and you won't meet anyone else, so these routes are for well-equipped, experienced hikers with good navigational skills.
With dramatic photographs, detailed mapping and frequent notes on places and points of interest, this is a book to inspire you and to take with you when you go.
- 30 walks ranging from 4km to 22km
- frequent notes on local history, geology and wildlife
- routes illustrated by OS map extracts
