This all-new Pathfinder Guide covering the far north of mainland Scotland features 28 outstanding walks (25 circular/looped and three there-and-back routes), and 32 delightful stop-off stroll recommendations around the course of the North Coast 500. This covers the northern Highlands north and west of Inverness making it the perfect walking companion for those touring the North Coast 500. These all-new rambles are sequentially set out, following the North Coast 500 in a clockwise direction from Inverness, and explore the west coast from Applecross to Sandwood Bay, the north coast from Durness to Duncansby Head, and the east coast from Wick to Cromarty Firth. There is the usual range of shorter routes, half-day walks and full-day hikes, plus a new feature for this guide – stop-off strolls at specially selected points on the North Coast 500 that are notable for their history, wildlife or sheer beauty that make ideal mini-walks you’d be sorry to miss. Walks are professionally authored and depicted with GPS.
