Essentially, Northern Edge Books is a grand name for a bit of desk top publishing from the spare room. I’m a climbing instructor, teaching all things related to the hills, from simple navigation to Scottish winter climbing. Over the past few years I’ve put together two guidebooks. I’ve tried to make them as informative, easy-to-use and as well-made as possible, and also make sure there’s something in them for everyone. If you purchase a book from this site, all the money goes to me, the author (I wouldn’t want to paint this site’s purpose as being anything else). You’ll undoubtedly be able to buy both books cheaper from a certain online retailer… but you’ll feel better if you buy them directly instead.
