Description

A walking guidebook to 40 of the best small mountains in Scotland under 3000ft, with OS maps and routes described as day-walks with ascents accessible to non-climbers. The guidebook splits Scotland into seven areas – Sutherland and the far north, Torridon, Lochaber, the Great Glen, the Cairngorms, Glencoe, Arrochar, the Trossachs and the islands (Skye, Eigg, Mull, Arran). With routes that range in length and difficulty and alternative options given there is something for walkers of all abilities. The guide also includes background information on the mountains and places of interest, practical advice on each route and how to prepare and make the most out of these small mountains and information on history, geology, flora and fauna. The popularity of Munro-bagging – climbing all the mountains in Scotland over 3000ft – has left many of Scotland’s finest mountains overlooked by walkers. What they lack in stature, they often more than make up for in beauty, views and character. This book champions just some of Scotland’s best smaller mountains – from the surreal and striking landscape of The Storr in Skye, the pagan festivals of Ben Ledi in the Trossachs to the imposing and rugged ridges of Quinag in the Sutherland.
