5.0 out of 5 stars 98 of the best, 25 Feb. 2009
This review is from: 100 Best Routes on Scottish Mountains (Paperback)
100 Routes is the best introduction you will find to walking the hills of the Scottish Highlands. The selection of routes is superb, the notes on the routes are accurate and the difficulty / scariness guides are very useful.

It's subjective so there's going to be quibbles. I'd reckon the SE ridge on Ben Lui is a scramble and the exit from Beinn Starav isn't but others could disagree. The book takes you to some wild places and you should expect to occasionally trip. One reviewer complains of this. They should be grateful it didn't happen on the Aonach Eagach where the trip could well have been fatal.

This book taught me about the Highland hills. In his introduction Mr Storer claims that most experienced walkers would argue about his routes rather than his choice of hills. Mostly he's right but now that I know more I'd ride my own obsession that Achallader is better than Dorain and why on earth Wyvis? So he only gets 98 out of 100.
