Review:

Strider December 2012

As the name suggests, this book is part of a 2 volume walker?s guide to the Scottish mountains between 2500 and 3000 feet high. The author states that it is ?aimed at the walker who wants the most interesting route? rather than the shortest one, and that consequently the guide is ?as much about exploring the glens as it is about climbing the peaks?. It appears to be well researched and describes 95 routes, each starting from the road or a railway station and visiting one or two Corbett summits. Detailed route descriptions are backed up with information about the history and environment. Also included is a wealth of practical advice and information about local accommodation and other amenities, to enable one to plan a holiday based on these walks. The routes vary in length enormously, some too long for most people to do in a day, and the author emphasises that these are not winter routes but should be tackled when free of snow. The guide achieves Cicerone?s usual high standard of presentation, with helpful maps and plenty of photographs to whet the appetite.
