West Cork is a place apart, with its own unique combination of flora, fauna, history and landscape, quietly explored by large numbers of visitors annually. This guide to some of the best low-level walks in the region has clear descriptions and engaging commentaries on natural and human history to enhance the walkers' enjoyment and appreciation of the walks. From the scenic interior to spectacular coastal scenery and islands, these cross-country, road and waterside excursions have something for everyone. Walks vary from 1.5 km strolls to that on Sherkin Island at 13 km. While one may take hours walking them, boat and cable-car timetables are included. The author has put his considerable experience and knowledge of the area to great use in putting together this evocative guide that introduces the best of the area. Each route is illustrated with a sketch map and colour photographs illustrate the beauty of the landscape, its wild creatures, wild flowers, and built heritage. This is a treasury of information to take readers on the ways less travelled, not just a turn-left, turn-right guide.
