More About the Author

Jacquetta Megarry is a late-onset long-distance walker resident in central Scotland. On her first long walk, the West Highland Way, she found the traditional design of guidebook impractical in rain and wind, so she created Rucksack Readers® - guidebooks in a new, rucksack-friendly format.

Since 2000, she has written or coauthored 14 other titles in the series, including the Rob Roy Way which she co-devised in 2001. She has edited a further 16 Rucksack Readers® and walks every route that she publishes, some repeatedly - to clarify route directions and to gain first-hand comparative experience of all the walks.

She has summited Mount Kilimanjaro by four different routes, and completed high-altitude treks also in Nepal, Peru and Morocco. Her experience on Aconcagua led her to devise the Rucksack Pocket Summits series for "seven summiteers". Her website is at www.rucsacs.com.

Format: Paperback
Anyone planning a trip to Speyside will enjoy this excellent and informative read - a great starting point for any holiday. Dedicated walkers will find it compact yet comprehensive - a route planner and almanac combined. At just under a tenner, I rate it a great buy.
As a light recreational walker and home owner in Speyside for over 20 years, I already know something of the area. Yet I found this new publication packed with useful, interesting (and accurate) information from start to finish. Indeed, I read it like a novel!
Of course, it's greatest value will be when actually on the trail and the spiral binding, waterproof paper and large-scale maps should make reading on-the-move very easy. The authors have an unusually clear style of writing and pack a great deal of information into short, punchy paragraphs. The entire publication is well presented and beautifully illustrated with original photographs and maps and there are suggestions and tips on everything from clothing to accommodation.

A value for money guide containing everything required. Easy to follow and well researched. Recommended for all walkers, whether planning a day trip and a short walk, or a longer trail over several days

As with the other 2 Rucksack guide books I have this is excellent. It is well researched, well written, easy to use, in a very handy format with good maps. I have no hesitation in recommending it.

Format: Spiral-bound
This book describes the walk from the coast uphill to Aviemore. It has some useful info, some good photos and a strip map of the walk in a semi stylised form.

It's waterproof, but also fairly heavy for what you get.

I have to say that having seen the book I also bought the Harveys map of the walk, which I found more useful on the walk itself.
