Scotland's Mountain Ridges: Scrambling, Mountaineering and Climbing - the Best Routes for Summer and Winter (Cicerone Guides)
A guidebook to the rich mix of summer scrambling, rock climbing and winter mountaineering on Scotland's ridges, from the remote Cairngorms to the splendour of the Cuillin. Graceful carved walkways slung between summits, twisted spines of stone - ridges can be the most beautiful of mountain landforms. With elegant lines and giddy exposure, ridge climbs emit a powerful siren call, drawing us out onto the rocks. Life on the edge has a special quality, born of the contrast of empty space all around, and intricate detail in close-up. The crests are strangely irresistible. Scotland's ridges are among the finest mountaineering lines in the country, every one a unique adventure. The variety of these routes reflects the breadth of the mountain experience: a rich mix of summer scrambles, technical rock and challenging winter climbs. This book covers both the popular classics and some obscure gems, aiming to celebrate these thrilling climbs as much as to document them. Along the way it explores landscapes of magnificent diversity, ranging from the remote desolation of the Cairngorms to the seaside splendour of the Cuillin, the great trench of Glencoe to the surreal exhibitionism of the far north. The chosen selection spans the grade range, with routes to suit all levels of ability. Whether an earthbound hillwalker or an accomplished climber, Scotland's ridges cannot fail to stir your imagination.

Scotland's Best Small Mountains (Cicerone Guides)
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.

Walking the Corbetts Vol 1 South of the Great Glen (Cicerone Walking Guides)
The Corbetts (Scotland's 2500-2999ft mountains) are every bit as interesting as the Munros (3000ft and over), often clear when the Munros are in cloud, walkable on short winter days, free of the peak-bagging crowds of their taller neighbours. Volume 1 of this two-volume Cicerone guide covers the Corbetts to the south of the Great Glen, which runs from Fort William to Inverness enclosing Loch Ness, probably Scotland's best-known loch. Choosing the best, rather than the quickest, routes up each summit the author covers 112 peaks in 95 routes, divided into 11 areas, each of which could be covered in a fortnight's holiday. South of Glasgow and Edinburgh are the moorland hills of the Southern Uplands, where seven peaks rise to Corbett status. In the Southern Highlands plenty of interesting Corbetts provide spectacular views of the Munros with easy access from Edinburgh and Glasgow. The Corbetts of the Eastern Highlands and the Monadhliath Mountains sit in sprawling heather plateaus, ideal for those seeking solitude.The South-West Highlands are known for their rocky peaks in places like Glen Coe and the highlights of Volume 1 are probably Arran and Jura, with their similarly rocky and isolated summits.

The Great Glen Way: Fort William to Inverness Two-Way Trail Guide (Cicerone Walking Guide)
The essential guidebook to walking the Great Glen Way, a 79-mile National Trail that runs along the Great Glen between Fort William and Inverness. The Great Glen is one of the most remarkable features in the Scottish landscape - a ruler-straight valley along an ancient fault line through the Highlands. Ideal as an introduction to long-distance walking, the Great Glen Way can easily be walked within a week, and most walkers will aim to complete the route in five or six days. The guidebook provides the walker with practical information, maps and clear route descriptions for every stage of the trek and lists the facilities found along the way. A separate OS map booklet shows the trail, which can be walked in either direction. The Great Glen Way stretches alongside the scenic Caledonian Canal, which links Loch Lochy and Loch Oich with the famous Loch Ness. The route uses undulating forest tracks, lakeside paths, old drove roads and military roads, as well as contrasting stretches over heather moorlands or through city suburbs. Walkers can enjoy the scenery and wildlife, delve into the history of the Highland clans, visit crumbling castles, or keep an eye open to spot the elusive Loch Ness Monster!

Scottish Hill Tracks
First published in 1947, this is a completely new and fully revised fifth edition of what has proved to be a very popular guidebook detailing the network of paths which criss-cross Scotland's hill country. With 344 routes, it is a unique resource for walkers, cyclists, riders and runners wishing to explore the network of paths, old roads and rights of way which criss-cross Scotland's hill country, from the Borders to Caithness. Divided into 25 sections, each with its own detailed colour map, this new edition has been fully revised and features more than 100 colour photographs of the routes, many of which link with popular long distance footpaths. The guidebook also acts as an important ongoing historical record which reflects the change in attitude to access following the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003.

The foreword is by Nicholas Crane.

Walking the Corbetts Vol 2 North of the Great Glen: Volume 2 (Cicerone Walking Guides)
The Corbetts (Scotland's 2500-2999ft mountains) are every bit as interesting as the Munros (3000ft and over), often clear when the Munros are in cloud, walkable on short winter days, free of the peak-bagging crowds of their taller neighbours. Volume 2 of this two-volume Cicerone guide covers the Corbetts to the north of the Great Glen, which runs from Fort William to Inverness enclosing Loch Ness, probably Scotland's best-known loch. Choosing the best, rather than the quickest, routes up each summit the author covers 109 peaks in 90 routes, divided into 10 areas. South of the Great Glen it is the Munros which attract most attention, but along the western seaboard and in the far north it is the Corbetts that dominate the landscape with isolated rocky peaks rising steeply above the sea and inland lochs, in a wilderness of heather and bog dotted with sparkling lochs and lochans. There are spectacular Corbetts all the way from Ardgour to Cape Wrath including those in Ardgour, Knoydart, Applecross, Torridon and Fisherfield. The far north-west provides some of the most magnificent mountain scenery in the world and it is difficult to beat the magical islands of Mull, Rum, Skye and Harris.

100 Scotsman Walks: From Hill to Glen and Riverside
Hillwalking is a way of life for Robin Howie, whose name is very well-known in Scottish hillwalking circles and whose knowledge of the Scottish high tops is second to none. For over ten years his popular weekly hillwalking column has appeared in The Scotsman where his pleasure of walking in the hills is apparent to the reader. Some claim to buy the paper solely to read his column while others have long-demanded that his walks be made into a book. Generous with his help and advice to other walkers, this collection of shorter, lower-level walks will appeal to families and those less sure of venturing to the high tops. Conveniently arranged within shires with a location map, each walk has a useful factfile that summarises the map, start point, distance, terrain, duration of walk, height to be climbed and the all-important nearest refreshment point. 100 Scotsman Walks is a distillation of a lifetime of highs and lows, enhanced by the artist's eye and the wordsmith's descriptive powers. It will be a delight for active or ex-walkers, for the would-be explorer or armchair enthusiast, for the whole family, young or old - a book in fact for everyone.
