Book Description

15 Mar 2008 Stone Country Guides
This is a follow-up to the popular rock climbing guidebook "Stone Country" which appeared in 2005 (ISBN 095487790X). It is a full-colour companion to all the best bouldering areas in Scotland, with hundreds of topos, maps, photographs and circuits for the travelling boulderer. It also documents the history of bouldering in Scotland and points to a limitless future for new bouldering from a vibrant community of climbers.Scotland is an exciting and vast geological arena for bouldering. This new guide covers recent development and classic bouldering in the main areas: Dumfries & Galloway, the Clyde Valley, the Trossachs & Arrochar, Lochaber & Glen Nevis, Torridon & Applecross, the East Coast, Aberdeenshire, Inverness & Strathspey, the Far North West and the Islands. Each area is given access maps, diagrams and photo-topos to pinpoint the classic problems and testpieces. It is a guide for the dedicated boulderer as much as the travelling 'circuit' boulderer, and will appeal to all those who enjoyed the first edition. This new edition is full colour and has been radically updated and exhaustively researched.

Product Description


Review for 'Stone Country' from John Gill:"This is perhaps the best bouldering guide I've ever seen. It is entirely literate (somewhat at odds with a great deal of what is published in this country), there is a lack of grading emphasis (how refreshing!), there is much interesting philosophy woven into the fabric of the text (unusual and highly appreciated), and the B&W photos are among the best I've ever seen - sharp and clear, showing form over mere image. A marvelous book."John Gill --John Gill

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 19 Jun 2011
Very handy book, can be easily put in the rucksack and stays open to the right page for use in-situ. Very clear description of the paths to approach the boulders and great drawings of the exact position.
Great buy, great fun!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book, poorly printed 16 Jun 2014
By Glen
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First a review of the book. It is compact enough to fit neatly in a rucksack but is wide enough to stay open fairly easily. It covers a large number of areas with lots of clear pictures showing both attempts at and highlighted routes. Moreover, descriptions of both the particular crag or boulder and the routes themselves lead to a very comprehensive guide.

Unfortunately, this is not enough to counteract an issue of poor printing leading to probably a quarter of the pages being printed too high. This meant that the otherwise useful colour coded area names were cut off.
