Doing more winter walking now, I used chapters in the book to help me plan my days away. I felt happy knowing that I was more prepared on what I could expect - I just had to get out on the hill and experience it for myself.
The chapter on mountain navigation in the snow is particularly enlightening - and I am an experienced with a compass.
It is a good read as well as being informative. It is not a route guide, more an in-depth study of the scottish mountains from a human adventurers' perspecrive. It sits as a valuable companion to my other adventure books on my bookshelf.
