Walking on La Palma: The World's Steepest Island (Cicerone Guides)
Walking on La Palma: The World's Steepest Island (Cicerone Guides)
by Paddy Dillon
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.06

4.0 out of 5 stars Good walking guide for La Palma, 20 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A well-researched and well-written walking guide for La Palma. I brought several guides to the Island and this is the one I ended up using the most.

The route descriptions are superb, but unfortunately the mapping is not up to Cicerone's usual standards.


Scotland (World Mountain Ranges)
Scotland (World Mountain Ranges)
by Chris Townsend
Edition: Paperback
Price: £20.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and inspirational, 20 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"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.
