Skye Scrambles

SMC Scramblers' Guide This is the 2011 fully updated and enlarged, colour edition of the very popular SMC guide 'Skye Scrambles', first published in 2000. The guide describes not only scrambles, but also walks and some easier rock climbs. It is the definitive guidebook to scrambling on Skye and as such it is also an essential guide for any hillwalkers wishing to venture into the mountains of The Cuillin.

There are informative introductory sections on geology, wildlife and mountaineering history. The guide is profusely illustrated with new colour maps, crag diagrams and photographs. A significant number of new outings are described and many route descriptions have been updated. The guide uses a slightly larger format than the previous guide and is also colour throughout. The traverse of the main ridge of the Cuillin is fully described and new diagrams have been created to show the crucial sections.

Skye has far and away the best scrambling in the UK. And this new edition of the guide gives the most comprehensive description so far available of the magnificent scrambles and easy climbs in the Cuillin and many other parts of the island.

The author, Noel Williams, has been visiting Skye for well over 30 years. He has a passion for the island and has climbed and scrambled extensively in the Cuillin as well as on many of the sea-cliffs. His explorations over many years have been enhanced by his geological background and a strong interest in photography.
