This inspirational guidebook describes 50 varied hiking and backpacking routes on the Scottish Hebrides islands, set out in a large guidebook format, and illustrated with a range of stunning photographs to be savoured.

The 50 walks are spread across both well-known and remote islands; from Skye, Mull, Rum, the Uists and Barra, Ulva, Iona, Eigg and Muck and more besides. Most of the walks provide a full day for experienced walkers, with a few multi-day adventures as well as some shorter routes. The walks also include Hebrides classics, like the Skye and Rum Cuillins, the Paps of Jura and full circuits of smaller islands.

The routes highlight all the very best landscapes and scenery to be found on the spectacular islands of the Hebrides, a wonderland for adventurous walkers to return to time and time again.
