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.

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.

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.

Useful tool going out of doors on expeditions. Simple format for finding different areas and lines of approach. Munro baggers companion.

Pretty much what it says on the tin. A little pocket book of Munros. Very brief routes, lists of heights and index of Munros by name, which is an improvement on the previous one. Maps seem better. Photos now in colour. Previous one had some interesting errors, like an entire mountain left out of the index! So far haven't found anything similar with this edition.

I'm not a munro bagger but this is perfect as a summary book and to quickly find nearby routes.

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.
