Orkney and Shetland Outstanding Circular Walks

Orkney and Shetland Outstanding Circular Walks

author: Terry Marsh
This Pathfinder guidebook provides 115 miles of island exploration, embracing an unsurpassed sense of space and freedom, and the respective history and culture of these two differing archipelagos. Relish dramatic and stunning coastlines at the Old Man of Hoy and St Ninian's Isle, bird watch from Britain's most northerly nature reserve, sea watch over Scarpa Flow, and visit the ancient sites of Cuween Chambered Cairn, Mousa Broch and Viking Jarlshof.

Clear and easy to follow directions are accompanied by detailed 1:25,000 scale Explorer colour maps from Ordnance Survey and specially commissioned photographs. GPS data for each waypoint of every walk is included. With 28 routes to choose from, colour coded for difficulty, and all tried and tested by seasoned walkers and varying from extended strolls to exhilarating hikes, there is a walk to suit all situations.

The guide introduces you to the area and highlights the most scenic walks. Each walk entry begins with a box giving start, distance, height gain, time, parking, and route terrain. This is followed by a short overview highlighting the routes features. The main route-finding instructions have paragraphs numbered corresponding to numbers on the OS map making navigation safe and easy. The route is highlighted in yellow on the map. The guide also includes information on where to park, good pubs and places of interest along the route.
