This guide offers 40 walking routes on the Uists and Barra - a unique 100km cluster of islands in Scotlands Outer Hebrides.

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 mainlands National Parks or on the Munros busy with peak baggers.

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....
