100 Scotsman Walks - From hill to glen and river

100 Scotsman Walks - From hill to glen and river

Hillwalking is a way of life for Robin Howie, whose name is very well-known in Scottish hillwalking circles and whose knowledge of the Scottish high tops is second to none. For over ten years his popular weekly hillwalking column has appeared in The Scotsman where his pleasure of walking in the hills is apparent to the reader. Some claim to buy the paper solely to read his column while others have long-demanded that his walks be made into a book.

Generous with his help and advice to other walkers, this collection of shorter, lower-level walks will appeal to families and those less sure of venturing to the high tops. Conveniently arranged within shires with a location map, each walk has a useful factfile that summarises the map, start point, distance, terrain, duration of walk, height to be climbed and the all-important nearest refreshment point.

100 Scotsman Walks is a distillation of a lifetime of highs and lows, enhanced by the artist’s eye and the wordsmith’s descriptive powers. It will be a delight for active or ex-walkers, for the would-be explorer or armchair enthusiast, for the whole family, young or old – a book in fact for everyone.
'...The appeal in the book for me was the other walks which make up the bulk of the conent. These give alternatives to Munros and Corbetts: ideal for half days and taking visitors perhaps not used to hillwalking. ... this book is ideal'. Munro Society Newsletter

'...The book is ideal for suggesting options that are a bit further afield ... in the main the routes described are not more than 5 hours ... refreshment spots are suggested...' Kirkintilloch Mountaineering Club

'...The narrative which accompanies each of the walks makes for entertaining reading. ...Usefully divided into different areas, with full page maps at the start of each section, this is a book to inspire walkers and to delight the armchair traveller too'. Scottish Home & Country
