GOING FOR A WALK Sunset behind Iochdar School

One of the best things in life is free; going for a walk. However, for a place where the natural environment is so close to us, it is not always easy to just set out and end up going for a lovely walk. The land can be boggy, lochs get in the way, and the narrow roads can be hazardous. Here we have listed walks that have been suggested to us, contacts for walking initiatives and references to walk leaflets, books and other resources.

Please look out for more changes to this page: we are now working with Niall Campbell to develop a footpath and cycle network, hopefully with QR coding at the start of each one.

N.B. Before using any part of this material, walkers should take their own safety precautions to suit their circumstances and style. We are unable to accept responsibility for the safety of individual walkers.

Most of these walks have been written by a regular visitor to these islands, Martin Margulies. The articles first appeared in Am Paipear, and are reproduced here with his permission. In 2011, the walks were collected together in a book, called Mhor and More. It is available from Amazon here.

Mike Townsend, who used to be a Geography Teacher at Liniclate School, has written a fantastic wee book of walks, published by Cicerone Guides. Highly recommended by me, you can buy it on Amazon here.
