5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any ski mountaineer in Scotland, 25 Nov 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Ski Mountaineering in Scotland (Library Binding)
A guide to many of the best routes for ski mountaineers in Scotland and a wonderful source of inspiration. But beware that the photos give a false sense of likely snow cover and weather - the author once told me that it took him some 20 years to gather the photos he used to illustrate a slide show with the same title. My only critisism is the section on equipment which suggests that nordic skis are not really suitable for many of these tours - completely wrong and contradicted by some of the photos (eg Ray Simpson telemarking in Tailors Burn, Ben MacDhuie).

5.0 out of 5 stars All you need to read, 27 Oct 2003
This review is from: Ski Mountaineering in Scotland (Library Binding)
An excellent book this. This is the sort of book (like Tom Patey's One Mans Mountains), that, after you read it, you are immediately fired with enthusiasm and want to go to the places you have just read about.
This (Scottish Ski Mountaineering) is a subject with few books - Malcolm Slessers "Scottish Mountains on Ski" is good, although a bit dated re equipment. And out of print! But Donnie Bennets book , like all his writing is first class. (Just as an aside, the late V A Firsoff also wrote extensively on S-M, his "On Ski in the Cairngorms" being particularly good)
Even if you never don a pair of touring skis, any outdoorsman worthy of the name will enjoy reading this - and the pics are first class.
Buy it!
