This review is from: Great Mountain Days in Scotland: 50 Classic Hillwalking Challenges (Collections) (Paperback)
Finally a book of real mountain challenges covering Scotland.
Instead of your regular Scottish mountain guide books which always give the same old routes up each individual mountain, I find this one gives so much more. The challenges cover multiple summit days, multiple summit overnight challenges, and long days to remote mountains. Like Dan Bailey's previous guides it's fresh, he's once again found the challenges no one else thinks of.
The fantastic cover shot basically shows you what type of days to expect from this book and having done 3 of the challenges so far myself I can say they're top drawer.
I found the maps and descriptions very simple, informative and excellent for planning. The whole book is full of Dan Bailey's photography with plenty of cracking pics on each challenge that really do inspire you through the planning stages.
Get this book and you'll definitely visit wild places you haven't stepped in before.
