A handbook covering the finest walks, scrambles, climbs and ski tours in Scotland, with its variety of wild landscapes ranging from the Southern Uplands to the great granite plateaus of the Cairngorms and jagged arêtes of the Cuillin hills on the Isle of Skye. All the information the independent mountain lover needs for any activity.
Scotland is a mountainous country with a wide variety of wild landscapes: there are the rolling hills of the Southern Uplands, the great granite plateaus of the Cairngorms, the steep castellated rock peaks of Torridon and the jagged narrow arêtes and spires of the Cuillin hills on the Isle of Skye. Of the many majestic summits, 284 reach 3000ft or more; these are the Munros, the ascent of which is the aim of many walkers. Below them lie splendid pine forests, beautiful lochs, deep glens, rushing rivers; a magnificent landscape.
