Product Description

Review

'Not another book on the Munros! But this one's different - not a coffee-table book but a 'climbing style' guidebook for actually taking on a Munro trip. The guides are aimed unashamedly at the Munro collector as is evidenced by the introductory remarks that fair-weather climbers may take a lifetime to complete the round. Surely the whole point of the Munros is that they should give us a lifetime of experiences in all weathers and in all seasons? Route descriptions are well written and clearly set out with an attractive ochre-coloured panel containing essential data about the route such as distance, times, maps, access and local accommodation. Denis Rankin, Irish Mountain Log Spring 2005

Product Description

This guidebook is volume 2 of a two-part set, detailing 70 routes to 144 Munros in the Cairngorms and Northern Highlands (north of the Great Glen). It includes all the popular routes, in areas such as Knoydart, Torridon and on Skye. The guide is ideal for Munro bagging, or for guidance on walking such hills as Ben Macdui, Cairn Gorm, The Angel's Peak, Craig Meagaidh and the Cuillin on Skye. All routes prefaced by a wealth of information about Gaelic names, accommodation and access; useful 10-figure grid refererences for key points such as summits and start point of awkward descent lines; travel and other information on making the most of your walks and your stay in the area. As well as a thorough introduction covering, transport and accommodation, each route includes information on distance, ascent, and route time; as well as detailed descriptions of the walk. Volume 1 covers the Munros of the southern, central and western Scottish highlands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful book for experienced walkers 7 Aug. 2011
By Aimee
Format:Paperback
This is a great little book - I was surprised at how easily it fits in a coat pocket. The routes are some of the more interesting ones but beware if you are inexperienced - many of the routes are 30km plus and aimed at people who want to cover many peaks in a day. If you are planning to tackle the munros one or two at a time, you might find this frustrating. Also, the timings are much faster than mine, but predictably so, if you know how far behind you usually are, you can work out how long the routes will take you! The safety bits and description of the Cairngorms is excellent and well worth a look if you are heading there for the first time. As always, you need a decent map with you.

Even though I've done a number of these hills before I'm looking forward to trying out a lot of the suggested routes.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent guidebooks 9 Mar. 2012
By badgit
Format:Paperback
This book and its accompanying vol I are a great source of information when heading to the hills. The route descriptions are brief and sometimes confusing, but it is a small book in a handy size to carry in your rucksack. Also the cover is waterproof, which is a nice bonus.
