Scotland’s Winter mountains with one axe
– guidebook features

– 156 pages
– 173mm x 226mm
– hardback (and reassuringly solid in the hand)

A book for anyone who loves the Scottish mountains. The selected journeys are spread throughout the Highlands – including the Cairngorms, Glencoe, Torridon, and Skye. Each journey is described in detail along with background information for the local mountain range and surrounding area. Although not an instructional book, there is some basic advice about the skills, clothing and safety equipment needed for a day’s outing in the winter mountains.

Descriptions are written so as to work well with either a 1:50,000 Ordnance Survey Maps or a Harvey’s Mountain Map. Grid references are supplied for the start of every route and for all important navigational points along the way. The book also has its own detailed maps…

Also, this is a drone-free book – all the photos are taken from mountain locations you can actually visit.
