About this book

The Isle of Mull is rugged, in many parts untamed and trackless, and everywhere it offers walkers of all abilities something special. That wildness also makes Mull, and its outlying islands, outstanding places to spot creatures such as eagles, otters, dolphins and porpoises.

The routes in this new guide range from 5 to 22km (3 to 14 miles) and from short circuits close to civilisation to truly remote and demanding mountain treks.

- 47 walks right across Mull and also on Ulva, Gometra, Iona and Erraid
- illustrated step-by-step with colour OS mapping
- packed with information about the islands’ history and their much-studied and endlessly fascinating geology
