"With its dramatic dolerite columns, sandstone overhangs and better weather, Skye’s craggy coastline is now well established as a major attraction for any visiting climber. The principle venue is the immaculate dolerite of Neist, where seemingly endless rock has provided a steady stream of quality new routes. Elsewhere, many new venues have been added since the last guide, including the cliffs of Raasay, while in winter, the Trotternish escarpment has provided numerous long, high quality ice climbs, with scope for many more." - Back cover.

Mark Hudson is a Skye aficionado and a graphic artist whose diagrams have enhanced two editions of the popular Skye Scrambles guidebook, as well as the Ben Nevis guidebook. A family home on the island has enabled him to spend a considerable amount of time here since childhood, which he has put to good use in becoming actively involved in the development of the climbing.
