Book Description

28 Mar 2002 Pevensey Guide
The Cairngorms is an area that has been shaped more by nature than by man. This guide to the Cairngorm Massif and the river valleys that form its boundary looks at the winter snows at Aviemore, the Braemar gathering, the flora and fauna of the area and the Royal connections at Balmoral.

More About the Author

I'm an all-weather walker, writer and photographer based in Southern Scotland. My special interest is in multi-day backpack trips over rough country, and I have completed 18 different coast-to-coast journeys across various parts of the UK. I like to sleep out without tent on UK hilltops, and have achieved comfortable nights on more than 70 in Scotland, Cumbria, and elsewhere in the UK.

In 1995 I won the Fell Running Association's Long Distance Trophy for a 10-day run over all the hills of Southern Scotland - a journey of 450 miles with over 90,000ft of ascent. I once completed the Ben Nevis race in 1hr 58 mins, and have climbed the Eiger but by its Mittelegi Ridge not its North Face.

I write in the magazines Lakeland Walker, TGO (formerly The Great Outdoors), Trail, Cumbria and elsewhere. In 1999, The Angry Corrie magazine wrote: "Turnbull is ultimately worth reading, not just because of the clever quirkiness of his thoughts and phrases but because his night yomps and his high bivvies and his off-beat, off-beaten-track jaunts show that he retains that most basic of outdoor-writer essentials: a simple love of being out there, somewhere, on the surface of the planet."

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide book 29 Oct 2005
By "kaog"
This is an excellent guide whether you're a first time visitor to the Cairngorms or a seasoned pro. It includes several walks ranging from riverside ambles to mountain hikes. This book covers the fascinating history of the area without rambling on unneccesarily and contains some stunning photography. I am a regular visitor to the Cairngorms and my copy of this book is now very dog eared and well-worn - I would strongly recommend it as an excellent 'all-rounder' guidebook.
