The Highlands of Scotland are one of Britain's great wilderness areas, particularly in the Far North.

Backpackers venturing into these remote lands get a true sense of being away from it, and this book gives a superb starting point for those wanting to explore this wonderful mountain region.

A total of 30 multi-day backpacking routes are described, along rugged coastlines from the Shetland Islands to the Rough Bounds of Knoydart, and across mountain ridges from the northern tip of Skye to the great trench of Glen Affric.

Most routes take just 2 or 3 days to complete, but for those wanting an even wilder experience a handful of longer routes are also included.

  • Covers all the main mountain regions north of the Great Glen, as well as many magnificent coastal walks on the islands of Shetland, Orkney, the Outer Hebrides, Skye and Rum.
  • Accommodation information provided, as well as details of good camp sites, bothies and hostels for use during the walk itself.
  • This is the third volume of Cicerone's Backpacker's series, and follows Volume 1: Northern England and Volume 2: Wales, both also by Graham Uney.
