Description - Walking on the Orkney and Shetland Isles by Graham Uney

A walking guidebook to 80 routes on the Orkney and Shetland Islands. Routes with OS maps to the Fair Isle, the Mainlands, Hoy, Foula, Yell, Unst, Rousay, Fetlar, Mousa, Westray, Eday and details on the towns of Lerwick and Kirkwall. The routes range between short strolls of less than a kilometre, to long adventures at 26km (16 miles). With plenty of options, there are routes suitable for walkers of all abilities. The guidebook also includes practical information on getting to and around the islands, ideas on where to stay and when to go, as well as a wealth of background detail on the history, geology, wildlife and places to go on the islands. Packed with archaeological sites, dotted with rare wildflowers and thronged with seabirds, these clusters of islands are a world away from the rest of Scotland. The walks explore the spectacular coasts, craggy mountains and wild moorlands of Shetland and Orkney.
