More About the Author

Nick Williams is an adventure author and speaker. He has twenty years' consultancy experience in corporate communications, served in the French Army and has degrees in Russian, Chinese and Environmental Science. He is the outdoor columnist for the Caledonian Mercury and author of nine books.

His latest title, Jagged Red Line, is an account of living and climbing in the crumbling USSR of the early 1990s. A mountaineering expedition to the war-torn Caucasus began with high expectations but ended in disaster. Nick suppressed the events for nearly two decades before he began to reassess what happened and write his story. The book was a finalist in the ForeWord Book of the Year, the NextGeneration Indie and the Eric Hoffer awards (2012-13).

Nick is the author of the first imprint of Pocket Mountains adventure guides. The series was shortlisted for the VisitScotland Travel Journalism and British Book Design awards and has sold over 150,000 copies.

Format: Paperback
A fantastic new range of walking guides. Great design, photography and route descriptions make these a great buy at only £5.99 each!
Pocket Mountains guides were published to critical acclaim in 2003. After reading and using this Guide to The Southern Highlands I can see why.
Written by Nick Williams, an experienced walker and climber, his choice of entertaining circular routes makes for many good hill days. Each guide features 40 walks complete with contoured maps, colour photography and local information - all packed into a convenient pocket-sized format. The guides cover all of the Munros and many other great hills in Scotland. Routes vary from easygoing half-day treks to longer expeditions over multiple tops. The trendy contemporary design, attractive photographs and detail make them an essential purchase for mountain lovers.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Ross Maynard VINE VOICE on 26 July 2007
Format: Paperback
The Pocket Mountains series is excellent, giving outline details of great walks in a small portable format. "Southern Highlands" covers the hills around Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, Glen Lyon, Crianlarich and Tyndrum. The most northerly hills covered are Beinn Dorain and Beinn an Dothaidh by Bridge of Orchy. East it goes as far as Schiehallion, and also covers Ben Lui, Ben More, Ben Lawers, Ben Lomond and many more. There are also a good number of walks which are not Munros but which offer an enjoyable day out including the Ochils, Ben Ledi, and the Cobbler. All the walks are accessible from Glasgow and Edinburgh, most within 2 hours drive. The walk descriptions are brief but allow you to plot the route on a map. Very useful if you don't know the area. The timings can be a bit ambitious and I would generally add 25% to the timings given for breaks etc. Great stuff.

Another of the brilliant pocket mountain series.
Well written and inspiring. The maps also give you a flavour but don't forget a proper OS map.
