4.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Flawed, 5 Mar 2011
Mapping in Malta isn't great so a book like this can be really helpful, especially since some of the maps we got hold of were inaccurate. The walk descriptions here were probably 95% accurate, but when you get comment such as "make your way to the firing range (now disused)" and you see that there are red flags flying and rapid gunfire emanating from that direction, it's as well to treat it with a certain amount of caution. It would have also been useful to have some distances included eg "turn left along the track after 200m" rather than "turn left along a track when you get to a T junction" in order to eliminate those ambiguities that led us tramping through private fields and bog in Gozo. But it all added to the fun.
