Produktbeschreibung
This guide offers 40 walking routes on the Uists and Barra - a unique 100km cluster of islands in Scotland's Outer Hebrides. The walks are varied and graded, from short, flat beach walks beside crystal clear waters to long excursions across wild mountainous terrain, the routes visit all the major islands from Berneray to Vatersay but also those smaller and offshore such as Eriskay and Mingulay. Routes are described in four sections, by area, and illustrated with vivid colour photographs and OS mapping. Walking across these landscapes, especially the hill country, gives a sense of remoteness and peaceful solitude that cannot be found in the mainland's National Parks or on the Munros busy with peak baggers. Despite a relatively narrow area, Uist and Barra's diverse islands offer a contrasting walking terrain and many ancient historic sites such as chambered cairns and standing stones as well as lots of local wildlife. Upland areas are home to red deer and golden and white-tailed eagles, while along the coast grey seals are common and thousands of birds set up their breeding grounds in the machair. Daily flights between Glasgow and Benbecula as well as the ferry network mean that all of the islands are readily accessible.

Autorenporträt
Mike Townsend's love of hills and wild places began when he spent teenage walking holidays in the Lake District and Snowdonia. Later, at Edinburgh University, his horizons expanded north to the Scottish Highlands, and in 1969 he first glimpsed the Isles of Uist and Barra from the Cuillin of Skye. His interest in mountaineering then took him further afield to the Alps and Greenland. After graduating in Geology, he was self-employed as a freelance mineralogist through much of the 70s, and this occupation involved extensive travel and occasional mountaineering, principally in South America and Australasia. Mike moved to the Outer Hebrides in 1980 to work as a Geography teacher on Barra, and relocated to Uist in 1988 to teach on the Isle of Benbecula. He has spent many prolonged periods since then, and even more since his retirement in 2010, exploring the hills and coastlines of the islands, particularly the more remote and unfrequented areas.
