About this book

This guidebook is Volume 1 of a two-part set, detailing 69 exciting and challenging routes to climb 139 Munro mountains, covering the southern, central and western highlands. Bound in a hard-wearing, waterproof PVC cover, it includes all the popular routes in these areas, such as in Glencoe, Lochaber and on Mull. The guide is ideal for Munro bagging, or for walking information on such hills as Ben Nevis, Cairn Gorm, Craig Meagaidh or Ben More.

The guide now features custom-drawn 1:100,000 maps alongside its outstanding colour photography, and its comprehensive information on tackling this famous collection of mountains includes useful details on Gaelic names, accommodation, access and advice for making the most out of a reader's time in the mountains. Volume 2 covers the Munros of the northern highlands and Cairngorms and explores the other 145 Munros.
