Overview

The essential guide to experiencing Scotland's truly dramatic, extensive, and ever-varying coastline on foot

The essential guide to experiencing Scotland's truly dramatic, extensive, and ever-varying coastline on foot Compiled in a user-friendly format with maps and illustrations throughout, this guide provides a wealth of walking possibilities for anyone with an interest in outdoor pursuits, with many suitable for children. Scotland and its islands encompass more than 10,000 miles of coastline that are as diverse and breathtaking as the country's inland scenery. The 100 wildly varied routes outlined here take in the quaint fishing ports, long sun-bleached strands, and vast golf links of the east coast; the grand Gothic cliffs, natural arches, and storm-tossed seastacks that comprise much of the fractured edge of the Atlantic; the kaleidoscopic wildflower carpet of the Western Isles machair; the remote, romantic castles and ancient clearance settlements of Skye; and myriad idyllic secluded beaches and breathtaking cliff-top vantage points. This unique guide covers the whole spectrum, from hour-long beach strolls to serious full-day hikes that require mountain gear and total commitment.
