I have spent many walks in the Cairngorm area and this book gave me a further taste of its majesty and adventure and has given me a taste for more well written and not v to over the top with technical stuff and incisive information to anyone who has or not stratified in that . Wonderful area a good read

Format: Paperback
I have climbed all the Cairngorm mountains and spent many nights in bothys ( no longer in situ). The whole region is intriguing and any account of this very special place is worth a read. I did enjoy the unfolding tale and obviously related it to my personal experiences. As a lone climber the Cairngorms have a special appeal. Of course they have to be treated with respect; but that is part of the overall appeal. Within this book there are a lot of references to other writings. Nothing really wrong with this. It makes the list of sources at the end very large. Whatever you feel about the book you really must go out there and see the plateau for yourself. If you are a loner like me this is better. If not choose your companions carefully as human beings can be so distracting. The wrong ones will ruin the Cairngorm experience.
