Difficulty

almost all of the walking routes covered demand a good level of fitness and ability to travel safely in wild countryside in changeable weather and use map and compass; some of the walks are arduous and demanding; some scrambles (clearly identified) involve exposure and require technical ability

Must See

for scramblers, the famous Cuillin ridge; the outstanding coastal scenery and the wacky pinnacles of Storr and the Quiraing; wilderness in abundance
