About this book

This guide describes 34 mountain walks in Scotland's far-west peninsula - including Morvern, Ardnamurchan and Ardgour - and on the island of Mull. Mull, Scotland's third largest isle, and for bard Dugold MacPhail 'Of Isles the Fairest', has something for everyone. Those with interests in archaeology, geology and history will be captivated; naturalists will be fascinated by its flora and fauna; but its universal magic is tranquility, while affording you all the joys of walking in the great outdoors. Across the narrow Sound of Mull, lies Morvern with Ardgour and Ardnamurchan. Here the enchantment continues to develop. At its farthest reaches, approached by a narrow road meandering through the finest scenery, is the most westerly part of the British mainland, Ardnamurchan Point. The allure of Mull, Morvern, Ardnamurchan and Ardgour is outstanding, and once you have seen them, you will want to visit Scotland's far west time after time.
