Many of Scotland-s finest mountains are overlooked by walkers, purely
because they lack a few metres in height. The aim of this guidebook is to
champion the best of them, selected for character, location, views,
historical significance, technical difficulty or simply beauty. From the
surreal and striking landscape of The Storr in Skye to the imposing and
rugged ridges of Quinag in Sutherland, this guide is, in its own way, an
antidote to Munro-bagging.
This book covers seven of Scotland's most scenic areas, from the
Sutherland and the far north to Arrochar and the Trossachs. Suitable for a
wide range of abilities, there are great small mountains to explore.
The 40 ascents described are mainly circular with optional variations also
suggested to give you the flexibility to extend or short cut as you wish, and
all are illustrated with photographs and OS mapping
