The Hebrides: 50 walking and backpacking routes
by Peter Edwards
Scattered along Scotland’s Atlantic seaboard, the elemental islands of the Hebridean archipelago are a wonderland for the adventurous walker. These breathtakingly beautiful islands are home to a wide range of fine walks among diverse and magnificent landscapes. From the jagged mountain ranges of the Skye and Rum Cuillin, the sweeping glens and elegant summits of Mull and Harris, to the wild shores of Jura and Colonsay, the vertiginous sea cliffs of St. Kilda and the dune-backed bays and machair pastures of the Uists, the Hebrides provides a wealth of possibilities – and no shortage of challenges.
Each of the islands has its distinct geography and character, but all share stretches of sublime coastline, remarkable geological features and spectacular wildlife. Fascinating traces of human activity, ancient and more recent, are scattered throughout these landscapes and the relaxed island culture of the present day will make you want to come back time and time again.
