Review

Definitive guide to the Central Belt and Southern

Scotland.

Covers the best (and the worst!) crags near Edinburgh and Glasgow, plus the Southern Uplands,

Berwickshire and Dumfrishire sea cliffs.

Notable Crags :

Auchinstary

Ratho

Fast Castle Seacliffs

Dumbarton Rock

Has a graded list, is easy to uses with clear diagrams. Lack of index is made up for with clear

sectioning within the guide.

Essential for those long, summer Scottish evenings

to enable escape from the city to the crags...
