This book traces the journey of glens and low passes, under the crags and high grassy sides of seven of Scotland's hill ranges. Along the way the reader will encounter wild goats, the red deer of Rannoch, the golden eagle and the meadow pipit, purple orchids, wild heather and golden birches.
Geologically, the West Highland Way is an outing from the Old Red Sandstone of the so-called Lowland Valley, through the grey schists of the Southern Highlands, to the great volcanic cauldron of Glen Coe. As it unfolds underfoot, it's an ever-changing vista of heather and oakwood, of lochside and riverside - but also a journey through the whole life and history of Celtic Scotland.
