Cicerone Guide Book: Great Mountain Days in Scotland by Dan Bailey
Big mountain days and a few nights
Scotland's mountains are among the wildest in Europe, thinly populated and still lightly touched by modern development.
This is a hard empty land of rock, loch and bog, sculpted by glaciers and dominated by the elements but also a land of great beauty, with water and mountains in a unique balance.
That rugged beauty, toughness and isolation are what bring hillwalkers, backpackers and fellrunners back time and again for some of the greatest mountain days (and nights) to be found anywhere in the world.
Some of the 50 walks described in Great Mountain Days in Scotland are well known classic challenges such as the Lochaber Traverse and Cairngorms 4000-ers while others approach a favourite mountain from a new angle or combine several in a testing way.
Each one can be crammed into a single, long day or backpacked over two to spend a little longer in this rugged and addictive landscape.
Great Mountain Days in Scotland spans the whole of Scotland from the Southern Uplands to the Outer Hebrides, reflecting the rich diversity of the upland areas and the sheer quality of its finest peaks.
This is the third title in the Cicerone Great Mountain Days series, which include the Lake District and Snowdonia.
