Prepared by a subject expert, each guide has full colour photographs, high quality original cartography and illustration and, with the support of the Ordnance Survey, OS map extracts.

This is a lively, readable account of the landscape of Skye, which explains how one of the most spectacular areas of Britain was shaped by volcanoes, glaciers, rivers and seas over millions of years. The authors have conducted detailed research on the island, and have made available for the first time their insights into the dynamic history of this most fascinating of landscapes.

This is a volume which will gladden the heart of all Skye folk with its praise for the island, and delight all mountaineers with its explanation of the physical structure beneath the magic of Skye - Reviewed in the West Highland Free Press, February 2003
