Walking on Rum and the Small Isles Paperback
This guidebook describes 16 routes across Rum, Eigg, Muck, Canna, Coll and Tiree, suitable for a wide range of abilities, and exploring coast, mountains and wilderness. The 15 day walks include a challenging round of the Rum Cuillin, and the one 3-day 55km backpacking route heads around the Rum coastline, sometimes over pathless and tough terrain.
The Small Isles are often called the hidden gems of the Western Isles, providing a walking paradise for those seeking wilderness and solitude, alongside the better-known Rum.
Highlights include, on Rum, the towering volcanic peaks of the Rum Cuillin, Kinloch Castle, Kilmory bay; An Sgurr and Cleadale on Eigg; Canna's towering cliffs and rock stacks; the verdant landscape and sparkling shores of Muck; and the white sand bays and flower-carpeted machair of Coll and Tiree.
Each island is different and has its own introduction here, with detailed information on geology, history and wildlife, as well as local amenities.
