The Pathfinder Guides 'Skye and the North West Highlands' guide book covers a substantial area of Scotland's western seaboard.
The walks divide simply into mountain and coastal routes. A clifftop walk starting at Stoer gives stunning views of Quinag and Ben More and the Outer Hebridean islands, while another route starts from Shieldaig, a picturesque village facing west towards the Applecross peninsula.
For the more adventurous, there is a walk to Rubha Hunish, the most northerly point of Skye. This tiny peninsula can be reached only by descending 300 ft high cliffs but it is a uniquely wild and beautiful spot.
