The fourth edition of this classic guidenot only offers the most detailed and comprehensive route descriptions to Scotland's 3000-foot peaks available in print, but it looks great too, with a smart layout and quality photography. This is the best Munros book yet produced, says Dan Bailey.
I bought the first edition back in the late 80's, as a novice "Munro bagger" the book was the essential reference of the time. Alas, my tally only reached 25 and I've not had many walking holidays to Scotland in recent years. Certainly looks to have far greater detail than the original 236 pages, route information on some of the more technically difficult Munro's was a bit scant, will consider this as a reference / planning guide for, hopefully, further forays to the Highlands, not the kind of book to take on to the hill, the two volume Cicerone guides by Steve Kew, look more rucksack compatible... Good and very useful review.
