Isle of Arran (Pevensey Island... Guide) Remote, romantic
and often mysterious, the islands off the coast of Scotland
hold a strong fascination for thousands of visitors each year.
Focusing on the Isle of Arran, this title is one of a series
of illustrated guidebooks providing information on heritage,
landscape, climate, flora and fauna.
in the Isle of Arran (A Cicerone... Guide) The Isle of Arran
rises from the Firth of Clyde between Ayrshire and Kintyre.
Its mountainous form dominates the open waters of the Clyde
and its jagged peaks present a challenge to walkers. The Isle
of Arran has much to offer the visitor and is often described
as "Scotland in miniature". Roads are very few, but
opportunities to explore the island on foot are many and varied.
This guidebook offers a selection of 40 one-day walks all over
the island, from gentle strolls along the glens to tough ridge
Walks: Southern Hebrides and Arran The islands off the west
coast of Scotland contain some of the most spectacular and unspoilt
scenery in the whole of Europe. From the glacier-worn summits
of Arran to the wave-lashed sand dunes on Tiree; from the silent
moors of Jura to the raucous seabird colonies of Colonsay; from
the medieval legacy of the carved crosses on Islay to the crumbling
cottages of the nineteenth-century crofters on Mull, these islands
are celebrated not only for their extraordinary natural beauty
but also for their unique history. This guide introduces the
islands by way of a series of 26 graded walks (easy to strenuous)
of various distances (2-13 miles) which will appeal to walkers
of all ages and experience. After a short preliminary section
on the islands, Stephen Whitehorne introduces the main points
of interest of each walk (scenery, wildlife, human settlements
etc.) and goes on to provide essential information for the walker
- OS references, distances, terrain, convenient stops and various
options. As well as sections on natural history and geology
and Gaelic language and culture, the book also includes indispensable
practical information on weather, local transport, accommodation,
access and safety considerations, thus enabling visitors to
make the very most of their visit to the islands.
