The Scottish Glens 2 - The Atholl Glens Summary


The Scottish Glens 2 - The Atholl Glens by Peter D. Koch-Osborne

A guidebook to walking and mountainbiking east of Drumochter in the Atholl Glens, Scotland, UK - the glens from Tilt to Cairnwell and between Aberfeldy and Dunkeld, using paths and tracks. The aim in this series of books is to provide the mountainbiker and walker with information on a variety of routes so they know what to expect on the ground. OS maps give no indication as to whether an 'other road' is metalled, a path or a forest fire break, or anything in between. Many bridges shown do not exist. Rivers are difficult to judge in size from the map, and a building may be anything from a pile of stones to a maintained bothy. All is revealed here without removing the sense of adventure and exploration. Gradient profiles help to assess how strenuous a route is, and each hand-drawn page contains a wealth of information. The object is to save wasted leisure time and enable the armchair explorer to plan ahead or relive experiences.

About Peter D. Koch-Osborne


Peter Koch-Osbourne has been walking and cycling in his native Yorkshire and the Lake District, and abroad in the Alps and Pyrenees, for as long as he can remember. On hiring bikes on a holiday near Aviemore with his family there was no information available other than the OS maps. Peter quickly set out to compile a guide to the tracks around the Cairngorms. The completion of the series of nine books took 10 years and he now lives in Beauly in the Highlands of Scotland where work on the last 6 or 7 books continued. Peter will soon be moving to Cumbria to be closer to family and friends and to re-visit his beloved Lakeland Hills. His writing activities have continued in the sphere of walking guides up in the Scottish Highlands but who knows what the future in Cumbria holds?
