A brand new edition of the guide collating scrambling and low grade rock climbs on the Isle of Skye.

An absolute must for someone venturing onto the

Cullin for the first time.

The diagrams are superb, and it uses the familiar scramble gradings found in other such publications.

There are plenty of great photographs taken in glorious sunny conditions to get you excited, and to let you know what it should look like when shrouded in the usual Hebridian Mist.

Also contains sections on history, geology, flora and fauna. Reprinted in 2003 and 2007.
