Voici comment l'éditeur présente ce titre sur son site :
Guidebook to walking the northern Munros, covering the northern Highlands, the Cairngorms and the Isle of Skye. 70 routes are described, including those up Ben Macdui, Braeriach and Cairn Gorm. Routes range from 7 to 46km, requiring a fair level of fitness. The second of two guidebooks to walking Scotland's Munros: peaks higher than 3000ft.
While these hills can all be climbed throughout the year, these guides are intended for the summer hillwalker. Scottish winter conditions require additional skills and experience.
While there are a few places, such as Braemar, Ullapool and Aviemore which could be used as bases, most of the routes are not close to villages or settlements that would be described as 'bases' without presenting a rather misleading picture.
Many Munros are straightforward walks in summer conditions, but some involve river crossing, ridge walking, scrambling and climbing. Route descriptions include an assessment of the difficulties and challenges posed by each walk.
Volume two of a two-volume guide to all 282 Munros, this title covers Torridon, An Teallach and the Northern Highlands from Ben Hope to Creag Meagaidh, including the Cairngorms and the Isle of Skye. It describes exciting and challenging routes over 143 Munro summits in some of the most extraordinary and beautiful parts of the highlands.
Volume two of Walking the Munros, this guidebook describes 70 challenging and inspiring routes up Scotland's iconic 3000ft+ mountains within the Northern Highlands, the Cairngorms and the Isle of Skye. The routes, which range from 7 to 46km (with the option to reduce walking distance on some of the longer routes by cycling the approach), cover 143 Munro summits, offering half and full-day walk and scramble options.
Clear and concise route descriptions are accompanied by 1:100K mapping, together with invaluable practical information on access, parking, accommodation and more. Also included are two handy indexes of the Munros - listed alphabetically and by height - a perfect resource for peak-baggers.
This guide incorporates both popular and lesser-known routes, and celebrates the raw and rugged beauty of these majestic mountains.
