Review

An excellent selected guide to Rock Climbing in Scotland, due now for a re-print - this edition might be hard to come across.

Covers all of the popular areas in Scotland.

Details transport, accomodation, restrictions, history, geology and each crag has a midge rating!

Clear diagrams and good route descriptions make this the

perfect book for those discovering Scotish Rock for the first time, or not wanting to spend a fortune on many definitive guides.
