4.0 out of 5 stars Munro Almanac
This is a superb information-packed wee book and excellent value for money. All heights and distances are given in imperial as well as the standard metric measurements, grid refs are provided for access points and a guide to pronunciation is provided for gaelic mountain names. McNeish tends to opt for long multiple-hill expeditions (eg the An Socach / Carn an Righ group)...

4.0 out of 5 stars Munro Almanac, 1 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Munro Almanac (Hardcover)
This is a superb information-packed wee book and excellent value for money. All heights and distances are given in imperial as well as the standard metric measurements, grid refs are provided for access points and a guide to pronunciation is provided for gaelic mountain names. McNeish tends to opt for long multiple-hill expeditions (eg the An Socach / Carn an Righ group) where two or three trips may be more rewarding, but as a whole, the Almanac is a valuable guide for those with an interest in Scotland's hills, be they committed Munroist or armchair climber.

5.0 out of 5 stars A handy wee gem..., 28 July 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Munro Almanac (Hardcover)
This book does just what it says on the cover... you can't ask for anything more. It provides the bare essentials to routes, times, access points and even pronunciations of Scotlands highest hills.
It really is an essential bit of kit that every avid "bagger" should keep in their rucksack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy Mountain Guide!, 5 Sept. 2012

This review is from: The Munro Almanac (Hardcover)
This is an excellent guide to the Scottish Munros. It fits easily into a pocket, or rucksack, and contains neat maps and some beautiful photos of some of the peaks. I particularly like the pronunciation guide which lets you make a reasonable attempt at some of the Gaelic names. For its size, it contains a wealth of information about each Munro providing, for example, its OS grid reference, height, the walking distance involved and the ascent necessary to reach the summit. It also has a very helpful basic Munro table at the rear with heights in feet and metres. Sturdily bound, it should prove reasonably durable on the hill.

Sometimes when your travelling light the more expansive books are too chunky to carry around. This handy sized reference contains all the essential information to identify suitable walks.

Bought as a birthday present but won't be given until January 27, 2013.
