Much of the walking is tough with some scrambling, through the wildest and most dramatic parts of Sardinia.

This guide explores 50 walks in the highest and wildest regions of Sardinia. The island lies in the Mediterranean, off the west coast of Italy and south of Corsica. It has long attracted visitors to its beaches, but what of the walking? This guide unlocks the remote and secret potential of the island's mountains and coastline away from the bustle of the resorts.
The walks described in this guide uncover the cliff coastline of Ogliastra, and the mountainous inland areas of Supramonte and Gennargentu. It is only in recent years that these areas have become walkable with the paths being cleared and waymarked. Now the rugged beauty of the coast and the macchia-covered hillsides and rocky mountain summits are waiting and ready to be explored.
This guidebook is an ideal companion to exploring the wild, mountain potential in Sardinia. The routes range from shorter, easier rambles to more challenging walks, ensuring that there are routes for all abilities. As well as detailed route descriptions, the guide includes practical information on travel to and around Sardinia, language and currency, accommodation, mountain safety and details on the many sights along the way.
Appendix C - The Lemon House - Peter Herold and Anne McGlone have retired from running The Lemon House. The new proprietors, Riky Felderer and Elena Congia, are both enthusiastic outdoors people who are continuing to operate the business on the same lines as before. Contact details are unchanged.
Walk 6 - There is no longer parking available at Su Liddone. However, drive further along the road as the 'broken bridge' has now been replaced by a concrete bridge called Ponte Sa Barva. Cross it and turn right, then park beside the track. Walk along the track, passing a turning on the left, to reach another left turn where there is parking available and a wooden sign details entry charges to Tiscali. The path to follow is clearly marked with red/white paint marks on rocks. The route is now approximately 2km (1¼ miles) shorter than described in the book.
Walk 10 - The streambed below Coile Sa Tuvera is around 600m, rather than 550m. After leaving Coile Su Monte Istagiau, the path climbs, then before it descends as described in the book, there is now a well-worn path heading to the right. If this is followed, it is possible to reach the nuraghic village of Os Murales from the opposite site to that described in the book. Using this path would avoid having to retrace steps a short distance after visiting Coile Su Monte Istagiau.
Walk 21 - The sign for Su Runcu Nieddu has gone, but there are a couple of signs pointing the way back to Santa Maria.
Walk 24 - There is now an entry charge of €6 per person to access the popular walk to Cala Goloritzè.
Walk 29 - Some signposting has been done along a number of paths close to Perda Pera.
