An ideal introduction for the first-time visitor, this book also provides new ideas for those who come year after year. Apart from marvellous coastal scenery that's been compared to that of Cornwall and Brittany, there is much to explore of the island's past. For example, you could follow some of Guernsey's 'green lanes' and 'water lanes' ? centuries-old paths once used by pack-horses and donkeys, or follow a route that takes in the relics of prehistoric burial grounds as well as remnants of the German Occupation during World War II. Tim Earl, a local resident and leader of guided walks on the island, also an expert on the island's bird life, has updated this new edition and has contributed a new walk which takes in the island's commemorative Millennium Walk.

Guernsey's coastline provides challenging cliff paths with steep climbs and lots of steps. Elsewhere the walking is very easy, since the terrain is almost level.

Pocket-sized and in full colour, this guide describes a car tour around Guernsey's coast (with accompanying fold-out touring map) and days out on the nearby islands of Alderney, Sark and Herm. But the major part of the book is devoted to 11 walks on Guernsey and one each on the other three islands, all illustrated with OS maps (1:25,000) - a boon, since these maps are no longer in print.

The best time to walk is in the spring, especially April/May for the flowers.
But walking is enjoyable through to October, and even in the winter months if you don't mind showers and bracing breezes. The book contains timetables for local transport, and a unique free on-line update service keeps users abreast of any route changes since publication.
