West Cork is a place apart, with its unique combination of flora, fauna, history and landscape, and is 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 walker's enjoyment and appreciation of the routes. From the scenic interior to spectacular coastal scenery and islands, these cross-country, road and waterside excursions have something for everyone. Walks vary from 1.5km strolls to a 13km traverse of Sherkin Island. The author has put his considerable experience and knowledge of the area to great use in this evocative guide, which introduces the best of the area. Each route has a sketch map and colour photographs to illustrate the beauty of the landscape, its wild creatures, wild fl owers and built heritage. Ferry and cable-car timetables are included. This is a treasury of information to take readers on the ways less travelled.
