‘The Skye Trail’ and other favourite routes by Skye’s walking and climbing guides
Skye has something to offer every kind of walker - wonderful coastal scenery, short walks to watch wildlife, alpine peaks on the Cuillin Ridge, and a unique crofting landscape of scattered houses, remote moorland and grazing sheep. If you have been inspired by the feature in National Geographic’s January 2010 issue called ‘Edge of the World’ p54-77; or by Cameron McNeish’s programme ‘The Skye Trail’, broadcast on BBC2 Scotland on Sun 27th December at 1845pm, then read on. Detailed here are walks and climbs from our local guides describing their favourite routes in Skye and Lochalsh. Some of them will be by guides filmed in Cameron’s programme, others will offer details on the part of the routes covered in ‘The Long Walk through Skye’, some will have favourites, not mentioned in the programme at all. Also listed is a new website detailing ‘The Skye Trail’ an informative guide to the ‘as yet’ unofficial route. There are chances to win books, DVDs, and walking holidays on our current promotions page, so if you’ve eaten too much and are relaxing by the fire, now is the time to be inspired and plan some walking holidays for those good new year resolutions you’re about to make!
