The 45 walks selected in this guidebook show the variety of the Isle of Arran off Scotland's west coast - ideal for walking with its mountain ranges, moorlands and forests to its coastline and dramatic cliffs, as well as the island's rich historical heritage. The Isle of Arran is often referred to as 'Scotland in miniature'. Its northern mountain ranges contrast markedly with its southern moorlands and forests, while its coastline features placid bays and striking cliffs. Roads are limited in extent, but opportunities to explore on foot abound. This guidebook follows paths into the high mountains, taking in deep glens and rocky ridges. Forest trails are discovered and extensive moorlands are traversed, as the routes reveal the archaeology, history and natural wonders of the island. Background notes indicate where food, drink and accommodation can be found, and the guide also provides information about visitor attractions island-wide and public transport around the island. The walking routes, ranging from easy nature trails to arduous mountain scrambles, provide thorough coverage of Arran, including nearby Holy Isle and its Buddhist retreat. One visit simply isn't enough, and Arran will draw you back time and time again.

A guidebook to the rich mix of summer scrambling, rock climbing and winter mountaineering on Scotland's ridges, from the remote Cairngorms to the splendour of the Cuillin. Graceful carved walkways slung between summits, twisted spines of stone - ridges can be the most beautiful of mountain landforms. With elegant lines and giddy exposure, ridge climbs emit a powerful siren call, drawing us out onto the rocks. Life on the edge has a special quality, born of the contrast of empty space all around, and intricate detail in close-up. The crests are strangely irresistible. Scotland's ridges are among the finest mountaineering lines in the country, every one a unique adventure. The variety of these routes reflects the breadth of the mountain experience: a rich mix of summer scrambles, technical rock and challenging winter climbs. This book covers both the popular classics and some obscure gems, aiming to celebrate these thrilling climbs as much as to document them. Along the way it explores landscapes of magnificent diversity, ranging from the remote desolation of the Cairngorms to the seaside splendour of the Cuillin, the great trench of Glencoe to the surreal exhibitionism of the far north. The chosen selection spans the grade range, with routes to suit all levels of ability. Whether an earthbound hillwalker or an accomplished climber, Scotland's ridges cannot fail to stir your imagination.
