Half of a two-volume set describing challenging and inspiring routes to climb Scotland's 282 3000ft+ mountains, this guide covers the southern, central and western Highlands (south of the Great Glen), taking in stunning areas such as Glen Coe, Glen Shee, Lochaber and Mull.
69 demanding and inspiring routes are described, covering 139 Munro mountains. Including both popular and lesser-known routes, the guide is ideal both for Munro-baggers and those who simply love great mountain walking. This volume includes the iconic Ben Nevis, Buachaille Etive Mor and Aonach Eagach ridge as well as the Mamores, Grey Corries and Arrochar Alps. Volume 2 details the other 143 Munros, covering the northern Highlands, Cairngorms and Isle of Skye.
The half-day and full-day walks and scrambles range from 7km to 48km (with the option to reduce walking distance on some of the longer routes by cycling the approach). Detailed route description and 1:100K mapping is accompanied by information on difficulty, mapping, parking, access and nearby accommodation. The guide also includes handy lists of the Munros, by height and alphabetically - perfect for peak-baggers - as well as useful details on Gaelic names.
