50 Best Routes on Scottish Mountains Summary

50 Best Routes on Scottish Mountains by Ralph Storer

Since Sir Hugh Munro published his first catalogue of Scottish peaks over 3000 feet, "Munro-bagging" has become widespread and in some cases obsessive - leading, perhaps, to a neglect of the lower but equally deserving peaks. For this book, Ralph Storer has picked 50 routes for walkers and mountain-bikers which traverse some of the most beautiful mountains the Highlands have to offer, irrespective of their height. The routes are illustrated and described in detail, and range from gentle strolls to challenging scrambles, and although they do not all take in a Munro, they do all include a peak of over 2000 feet. The text is supported by ratings for terrain, adverse conditions and technical difficulty, together with maps and colour photographs. Storer is the author of "Skye: Walking, Scrambling and Exploring" and "Exploring Scottish Hill Tracks".
