Product Description

Review

I have just recently purchased this book and done lots of walks from it and it really opened up my local hills to me. Previously there were many hills in the Campsies and the Ochils that I wanted to climb but couldn't figure out a safe route to them from the OS maps but this outstanding book gives you detailed route information all following easy to identify features on the ground to use as navigational handrails, it is well written and uses extracts from the relevant OS maps to illustrate the routes. There are many little known and little walked but spectacular hills featured here that you wont find in any other guidebook. At last an excellent guide book for the Campsies/Ochils and Lomonds. Congratulations to the author. Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk 'It's clear the author knows his subject well and has tramped the hills described in this book very many times. His acquaintance, wisdom and knowledge of the three areas stand out proud. The book is a bargain at GBP10 and for anyone planning to explore the three areas described, there is no better way than taking this book with you.' Scottish Mountaineer magazine / February 2007

About the Author

As a keen outdoor enthusiast, Patrick Baker spends the majority of his free time walking, climbing or scrambling in the Scottish hills. This passion for the outdoors has led to several expeditions in major mountain ranges across Europe but closer to home, time spent in the mountains of the West Highlands and the Cairngorms and the hills of the Central Scotland is an ongoing source of interest and enjoyment.

Format: Paperback
Well written book, which has introduced us to areas that we would normally have driven past on our way North and West, (from Edinburgh). Simple, easy to follow directions, with clear mini-map inserts.

The only draw-back is the estimated completion times. My family, (with children of 10&12) usually take at least 50% longer than the guide suggests. I know people vary - but I think the times must be nearer to Olympic than typical .... (go on ... scoff). Still thoroughly recommend the book - but be cautious until you have calibrated yourself !

This is a good book and its size is fantastic for slipping into a jacket pocket.
I have tried a difficulty level 1 walk - (yeh wimpy I know but just recovering from injury so taking things easy) - found the route -walk 2 Dumyat Hill to be very overgrown at start and unrecogniseable at end of route from what exists today - basically as with most guides is outdated in sections so novices beware.

Very handy little book.

Not too big so it's easy to carry.
I've only done a couple of the walks so far but the directions have been easy to follow.
I bought the book mainly for the Campsie Fells walks but those in the Ochils look nice so I'll be heading there soon.
All in all I'd reccommend this book to anyone wanting a few days out walking in some of Scotlands lovliest areas.
