Beautiful and inspirational, 20 May 2013
"Scotland" is probably the most informative and beautiful book about Scotland as a mountain area. Chris Townsend shares with the reader his encyclopedic knowledge of these Scottish hills.
This book is not a walking guide; it's not the type of book that shows you the fastest way up each Munro or the type of book that gives you detailed walking descriptions for a certain route. It rather gives you some information about the history and geology of the area followed by a number of route ideas. The description of the route tells you what the walk, scramble or climb is like rather than the way to guy.
Combined with the stunning photography, "Scotland" is a truly inspirational book for preparing your journey on the Scottish hills.
