Excellent -though with impossible walks!
on 29 December 2012
"Great Mountain Days in Scotland" is a beautiful book and a must for any keen hillwalker. It is lovingly written, with good route descriptions, and gorgeously illustrated. My only gripe is that many of the walks are impossible as single outings for the mere mortal walker. The uber-fit twenty-something might be able to match these "challenges" but not the forty-something like me. To give just one example of many, he covers ALL the Munros in Glencoe (both sides of the glen) in one trip - impossible! I suppose the upside of this is that there are far more than 50 walks here.
It is a fabulous book, and a great inspiration for walks - highly recommended for the mountain walker. Just be realistic about what you can achieve and split the walks into chunks.
