By (author) Steve Kew

This guidebook presents 69 challenging and inspiring routes to climb 139 Munro mountains, including Scotland’s highest peak, Ben Nevis. Part of a two-part set, this first volume covers the southern, central and western Highlands (south of the Great Glen), taking in stunning areas such as Glen Coe, Glen Shee, Lochaber and Mull. Covering popular and lesser-known routes, it is ideal both for Munro-baggers and those who simply love great mountain walking, and is a convenient size for slipping in a rucksack.The half-day and full-day walks and scrambles range from 7km to 48km (with the option to reduce walking distance on some of the longer routes by cycling the approach). Detailed route description and 1:100,000 mapping is accompanied by information on difficulty, mapping, parking, access and nearby accommodation. The guide also includes handy lists of Munros, by height and alphabetically – perfect for peak-baggers – as well as useful details on Gaelic names.Including the iconic Ben Nevis, Buachaille Etive Mor and Aonach Eagach ridge as well as the Mamores, Grey Corries and Arrochar Alps, Walking the Munros volume 1 is an ideal companion to conquering the Munros and discovering the magnificent mountain landscapes of the southern Highlands.Volume 2 details the other 143 Munros, covering the northern Highlands, Cairngorms and Isle of Skye.
