Book Description

15 April 2006
This 2013 revised reprint of the Scottish Mountaineering Club's definitive hillwalkers' guidebook to the Munros reflects the recent demotion of Beinn a' Chlaidheim in the Fisherfield Hills, reducing the total number of Munros to 282. In addition, descriptions and maps throughout the book have been comprehensively revised to reflect changes to routes and access points. Since its first publication in 1985, all profits from this best selling guidebook have been donated to the Scottish Mountaineering Trust, a charity created to promote the enjoyment, appreciation and conservation of mountains and the mountain environment.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is my preferred Munro book 25 May 2011
Format:Hardcover
I just bought a new copy. The one I had since the 1980s got lost. I like this book because it gave me routes on less complex mountains that even I could do as an inexperienced hill-walker. Just look for lesser ascent heights and times in the descriptive texts. These easier mountains got me accustomed to Scottish conditions in easy stages. The other popular Munro bagger's book, by Cameron McNeish, has quite a few tough, long expeditions with a lot of ascent. It's a nice guide to alternative ways of doing the hills, but I think Bennett is a better buy for the beginner or anyone who is not super fit. When you've done a couple of dozen hills and have confidence in your ability to navigate and map-read you'll find yourself devising your own routes using Bennett as an initial guide. You will need the appropriate OS maps and a compass (and know how to use them) as a minimum for the actual walk. But this book will let you sit at home beforehand and plan your route on the OS map. That planning stage is most important as a learning exercise and the pleasure of anticipation that you get is not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best guide for the Scottish hillwalker 25 Jan 2007
Format:Hardcover
This book is the definitive guide to the Munros. Every one of them is given a detailed description of how to climb it with photos, maps and a good description of the route(s). If you've never climbed a Munro in your life, but want to start, this is the book for you. Buy it today and you'll never need to go to a gym again!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Good Book 17 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover
I'm not the first and I'll certainly not be the last to refer to this work as 'The Scottish Hillwalker's Bible'. It almost seems redundant to recommend it. Anyone serious about climbing Munros knows already that this is the book you must own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just walk 29 Nov 2009
Format:Hardcover
A Great book with all the info you need to get walking in the mountains of Scotland. The photos are amazing (and actually even without the text would be worth buying the book for that)

Pros
Easy to follow the routes and several choices suggested for each Munro.

Cons
The diagrams of ascents are not so easy to follow when you are preparing your walk the night before (unlike Cameron McNeish's book which has very good drawings of routes)

All in all however I much prefer this book and well worth the price

5.0 out of 5 stars Munro climbers must have! 2 Oct 2008
A Kid's Review
Format:Hardcover
This book was recommended to me by an elderly gentleman who has climbed the Munroes many times. Ideal to carry on walks and do take heed of the recommendations and safety tips. Even for the experienced climber this book is useful.
