Review

Covers scrambles and easy climbs from Knoydart southwards via Lochaber and Glencoe to Galloway and eastwards to the Cairngorms, including Rum, Mull and Arran. 216 routes get a full description, with brief mentions of others, ranging from the obvious classics such as Curved Ridge, the Aonach Eagach and the Cobbler Traverse to rarely visited routes in areas such as Ardgour and Ben Alder. Goes from virtually roadside routes in Ardnamurchan and Glencoe to remote ones in obscure parts of the Cairngorms and the Rough Bounds. 95 photodiagrams cover nearly all the routes.
