Format: Hardcover
I just bought a new copy. The one I had since the 1980s got lost. I like this book because it gave me routes on less complex mountains that even I could do as an inexperienced hill-walker. Just look for lesser ascent heights and times in the descriptive texts. These easier mountains got me accustomed to Scottish conditions in easy stages. The other popular Munro bagger's book, by Cameron McNeish, has quite a few tough, long expeditions with a lot of ascent. It's a nice guide to alternative ways of doing the hills, but I think Bennett is a better buy for the beginner or anyone who is not super fit. When you've done a couple of dozen hills and have confidence in your ability to navigate and map-read you'll find yourself devising your own routes using Bennett as an initial guide. You will need the appropriate OS maps and a compass (and know how to use them) as a minimum for the actual walk. But this book will let you sit at home beforehand and plan your route on the OS map. That planning stage is most important as a learning exercise and the pleasure of anticipation that you get is not to be missed.

This book is the definitive guide to the Munros. Every one of them is given a detailed description of how to climb it with photos, maps and a good description of the route(s). If you've never climbed a Munro in your life, but want to start, this is the book for you. Buy it today and you'll never need to go to a gym again!

A Kid's Review on 2 Oct. 2008
Format: Hardcover
This book was recommended to me by an elderly gentleman who has climbed the Munroes many times. Ideal to carry on walks and do take heed of the recommendations and safety tips. Even for the experienced climber this book is useful.

I'm not the first and I'll certainly not be the last to refer to this work as 'The Scottish Hillwalker's Bible'. It almost seems redundant to recommend it. Anyone serious about climbing Munros knows already that this is the book you must own.

There are a few imposters out there, but this book is the best. Sometimes the time estimations are a little optimistic, it think the times are based on Naismith's rule. Otherwise this is the best book for those seeking guidance on tackling Scotland's mountains over 3000ft.

Fabulous photos and good diagrams make this the best. It's no substitute for a map though, but I did find a photocopy of the relevant page handy tucked in to my case behind the map.

A Great book with all the info you need to get walking in the mountains of Scotland. The photos are amazing (and actually even without the text would be worth buying the book for that)

Pros
Easy to follow the routes and several choices suggested for each Munro.

Cons
The diagrams of ascents are not so easy to follow when you are preparing your walk the night before (unlike Cameron McNeish's book which has very good drawings of routes)

All in all however I much prefer this book and well worth the price

This book arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I haven't noticed much difference in content from the previous edition, but I haven't examined it in detail. Some of the photos have been updated and of course it includes all the current official Munros. I found this book very useful planning a couple of recent day walks. It it practical and readable and easy to navigate. The small discount on the RRP was a wee bonus.
