Lewis - Walks in the Western Isles Guidebook

Lewis - Walks in the Western Isles Guidebook

author: Peter Edwards
The Isle of Lewis is a magnificent domain of rugged hill country and lochan-scattered moorland, fringed by tenacious crofting townships. The coastline is a realm of rocky cliffs, sea lochs, islands and skerries while the west coast is garlanded with dazzling dune-backed beaches. History is everywhere in Lewis, with remarkable monuments to human endeavour, ancient and more recent, punctuating the landscape.

The 25 walks in this guidebook explore the island's range of environments, providing opportunities to experience its spectacular wildlife and encounter the physical traces of its history. Each walk begins with the practical information required to get to the start and complete the walk, including distance, total ascent, ferry and bus information and any special difficulties. Detailed route-finding instructions are provided together with an overview sketch map. Carrying the relevant OS 1:25,000 scale paper or digital map is recommended. The book includes some stunning colour photographs. The informative introduction sets the scene for exploring the island, providing an insight into the landscape and history essential to get the most out of the walks.
