his [Storer's] books are exceptional... [he] subverts the guidebook genre completely. --Perkin Warbeck, The Angry Corrie
After much praise and cult following from avid Munro baggers following the first book comes the second volume in The Ultimate Guide to the Munros series... Enriched by its reference to local legend, historical anecdotes drizzle the book with a perfest sum of quintessential nostalgia... Hill walker or not, this guide will inspire even the most lackluster walker for a sprightly take to the hills. --Edinburgh Evening News
Volume one in this series... suggested the emergence of the definitive series of rucksack-friendly guides to climbing Scotland's Munros. A year on and volume two continues with the same winning format... The approach is, above all, practical... plus his trademark light-touch humour and interesting asides. --Lindsay Macdonald, Press and Journal
Storer is happy to share numerous irreverent insights into the hills, and this acts as a timely reminder that walking should, after all, be primarily about enjoyment of the great outdoors. A further advantage is that the book will easily fit in a rucksack and does not require SAS training to lug it up the slopes. --Rob Fletcher, Scottish Field Magazine
This copiously-illustrated pocket-sized guide is the second in the rucksack-friendly series which provides details of all practicable routes up the Munros. With the winning combination of reliable advice and quirky humour, this is the ideal hillwalking companion --The Scots Magazine
