An interesting and useful guide for visitors to this beautiful area who like walking. However, this guide does not appear to have been revised since 1996 and some of the paths are not in the condition described. Those looking for walks in the "easy" category might feel misled and might even get lost or encounter difficulty if using this book as their only guide. For example, the book describes the footpath from the A855 to the Old Man of Storr (walk 5) as "easy" and says it "follows a well maintained footpath", but when we visited last year we found the ascent very steep and the footpath VERY badly eroded, making it necessary to scramble on all fours through crumbling peat in places. I definitely would not describe it as "well maintained". To give another example, the directions given for the Shieldaig walk (walk 2) are far too vague - at one point the only direction given is "the way swings southwards" where in reality there is a sheer drop with no apparent pathway down! On the plus side, some of the walks are well described and very enjoyable - for example walk 16, Coire Mhic Fhearchair is a wonderful, scenic walk up into the Torridon mountains, between the peaks of Beinn Eighe and Liathach. I would recommend supplementing this book with use of a large-scale OS map and a compass at all times and then you should be fine.

I absolutely love the Pathfinder Guides and have seen many a walker on the same route as me with the very same book in hand. However, this edition doesn't compare with the rest. The title says it all: `Skye and the North West Highlands'. If you are planning a trip to Skye then this book has plenty of walks of differing degrees of length and difficulty. However, if you are planning to go to the North West Highlands, e.g. anywhere north of Skye, then I would advise against this guide, as the limited number of walks beyond Skye does not justify the price.

This is a great little book and I have used Pathfinder Guides before. The only downside to it is if you've not walked in the area before - is that the walks are referred to by their location i.e. name of mountain or area. If you are not familiar with the area it is difficult to know which walks are based on the Isle of Skye and which are based in the North West Highlands. This is a minor issue and the 2 walks we did from the book were well described.

We were booked up to spend a few days in Gairloch and decided to buy this guide.
We are glad we did as some of the walks we managed to cram in were spectacular and we probably would have missed out if it hadn't been for this book.
Will certainly be buying more of this series of guides.

This little book provides good information on some interesting walks. So far I've only used the information on Skye but it proved up to date and spot on.
