Publisher's information 2012

This new guide is the first to offer detailed descriptions of a range of routes on Rum, Eigg, Muck, Canna, Coll and Tiree.

Collectively known as The Small Isles, the islands are often called the hidden gems of the Western Isles, providing a walking paradise for those seeking wilderness and solitude, alongside highlights such as the towering volcanic peaks of the Rum Cuillin, the prow-like peak of An Sgurr on Eigg and the spectacular cliffs of Canna.

The routes described include a challenging round of the Rum Cuillin and an even tougher 55km backpack around the Rum coastline, sometimes over pathless and tough terrain. Also included are easier routes on Rum, along long-established paths, for exploring the National Nature Reserve and spotting deer, golden eagles, feral goats and Rum ponies along the way.

Walking conditions on all the islands can be wet, rough and changeable, so this guide is also full of advice on how to prepare and
what to take, as well as detailed route descriptions and mapping.
