Review
A diverse variety of cliffs and rock types can be found in

this comprehensive guidebook, from the sea-cliffs of the Moray Firth and Aberdeen coasts, to the semi-mountain crags of Deeside and Glen Clova and the quarries and sea-cliffs of Angus.

Many new diagrams and maps compliment significant developments at Rosehearty, Portlethen and Arbroath and there is an extensive section on bouldering.
