5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT GUIDE TO SOME VERY LONELY AND LITTLE WALKED PLACES IN THESE HILLS, 19 April 2006
By 
Ian Cameron "HILL GANGREL" (NORTH LANARKSHIRE) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Walking in the Ochils, Campsie Fells and Lomond Hills: 33 Walks in Scotland's Central Fells (Cicerone British Walking) (Paperback)
I HAVE JUST RECENTLY PURCHASED THIS BOOK AND DONE LOTS OF WALKS FROM IT AND IT HAS 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 COULDNT 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great guide, but optimistic route times, 19 Sep 2011
This review is from: Walking in the Ochils, Campsie Fells and Lomond Hills: 33 Walks in Scotland's Central Fells (Cicerone British Walking) (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 !

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good but not flawless, 9 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Walking in the Ochils, Campsie Fells and Lomond Hills: 33 Walks in Scotland's Central Fells (Cicerone British Walking) (Paperback)
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very overgrown at start and unrecogniseable at end of route from what exists today - basically as with most guides is outdated in sections so novices beware.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Book, 7 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Walking in the Ochils, Campsie Fells and Lomond Hills: 33 Walks in Scotland's Central Fells (Cicerone British Walking) (Paperback)
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.
