Scottish Highlands and the Island of Skye
This book brings to life some of the most breathtaking scenery in the British Isles. The author has explored every nook and cranny of the Highlands and Skye - as well as the mountaintops. The Highlands are one of Europe's last great wilderness areas, one of the few remaining landscapes where the luxuries of solitude, silence and space abound.

While the tourist boards tend to perpetuate the myths of kilt and bagpipe, the Loch Ness monster and romantic medieval castles, most people visit Scotland for the reality - for the beauty and great diversity of its scenery, to discover remote lochs, atmospheric glens and dramatic mountains.

Touring the Scottish Highlands by car, enjoying the picnic suggestions, or walking in the Scottish Highlands, this book will allow you to discover the very best the Highlands have to offer. The book covers a vast geographical area - over half of Scotland in fact.

Stephen Whitehorne is one of Scotland's best-known photographer/authors. The photographic images in this book - all of calendar quality - will whet your appetite and remain a wonderful souvenir of your holiday in the Highlands.

10 car tours (with accompanying touring maps), 45 long and short walks (each with 1:50,000 topo map), 12 picnic suggestions. Free online update service with specific route change information on the publisher's website, maintained daily.

The 'Landscapes' series, with 50 destinations, has been dubbed 'the blue Bibles' by the Sunday Times and led to Sunflower being one of only four publishers (from a field of 18) chosen as aWhich? Recommended Provider of Guidebooks.

This wilderness gives me not only the fresh air and physical rejuvenation I crave, but it affects me on a far more profound level as well, providing endless poetic and aesthetic inspiration for my work as a photographer. The region's social and natural history is fascinating, but this landscape can be an essential spiritual refuge too. --(Stephen Whitehorne, author)
