Great Mountain Days in Scotland - 50 classic hillwalking challenges

Scotland’s mountains are among the wildest in Europe, thinly populated and still lightly touched by modern development. This is a hard empty land of rock, loch and bog, sculpted by glaciers and dominated by the elements but also a land of great beauty, with water and mountains in a unique balance.

That rugged beauty, toughness and isolation are what bring hillwalkers, backpackers and fellrunners back time and again for some of the greatest mountain days (and nights) to be found anywhere in the world.

This collection spans the whole of Scotland from the Southern Uplands to the Outer Hebrides, reflecting the rich diversity of the upland areas and the sheer quality of its finest peaks.

As well as a practical guidebook, this is a celebration of our priceless mountain landscapes.

• 50 challenging walking or backpacking routes across Scotland, from 12 to 25 miles long, many with optional scrambles
• Several routes feature optional approaches by mountain bike or kayak
