This first volume of a two-part series of guides to the Munros covers the southern, central and western highlands, Glencoe, Lochaber and Mull, and details routes for these 139 exciting and challenging mountains. A comprehensive introduction sets out the history of the Munros and includes vital information to make your quest as successful as possible. This is Cicerone's contribution to the Munro-bagging phenomenon, and when produced in full colour and in their usual hand, durable and waterproof format, these two books really do amount to a useful and worthy addition to every Munroist's library.
The key features are: includes comprehensive information on tackling this famous collection of mountains, such as weather conditions, access, and the geology of the area; detailed route descriptions around each of the 139 Munros (all the popular routes included), with sketch map for each route. All routes are prefaced by a wealth of information about Gaelic names, accommodation and access. A useful feature for the GPS generation is that 10-figure grid refererences are given for key points such as summits and start point of awkward descent lines. Each section includes travel and other information on making the most of your walks and your stay in the area. An appendix listing all the Munros covered in the guide is also present. The book features outstanding full-colour photography, and a hard-wearing, waterproof PVC cover.
