Walking the Munros : Northern Highlands and the Cairngorms (Vol 2) (Paperback) (Steve Kew)
about this item
The Munros – the Scottish mountains over 3000ft – boast some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in Britain. Volume 2 of a two-part set, this guide details 70 exciting and challenging routes to climb 143 Munros in the Cairngorms, northern highlands and Isle of Skye. It is aimed at those with experience of mountain walking, as many of the routes are in remote areas and some involve scrambling. The volume features classic ascents in many popular locations, for example, the breathtaking Cuillin of Skye.
Alongside 1:100,000 mapping and colour photography, the guide provides comprehensive information on tackling this famous collection of mountains with useful details on Gaelic names, mountain safety (including localised concerns), when to go, accommodation and access. Also included is a full list of all 282 Munros -– a useful resource for peak-baggers.
Volume 1 covers the Munros of the southern, central and western highlands.
