Island Walks

Island Walks:
The Western Isles, Skye and the Small Isles

by Stephen Whitehorne,
2002 Birlinn Limited



In this book Stephen Whitehorne describes a series of graded walks (easy to strenuous) which will appeal to walkers of all ages and experience. The guide introduces the main pints of interest of each walk - scenery, wildlife, human settlements - and goes on to provide essential information for the walker - OS references, distances, terrain, convenient stops and various options.

For Raasay the book describes the East Coast walk to Hallaig, Dun Caan, Torran Woods and the North and a short walk around Raasay House and the woods.
