Walking in the Cairngorms : Walks, Trails and Scrambles, Paperback

Walking in the Cairngorms : Walks, Trails and Scrambles Paperback



This guidebook contains over 100 routes for walking in the Scottish Cairngorms.

Included are 23 Munro summits and smaller viewpoint hills.

Walks range in length between 1 and 23 miles and are graded for difficulty.

For the adventurous there are the best of the area's rocky scrambles, and the classic through-routes including the Lairig Ghru.

For others there are easy, sandy trails wandering among the tall pines and along the banks of the great rivers Spey, Nethy and Dee.

Britain's biggest mountain range is special in several ways.

There's the granite plateau, and an Arctic ecosystem of gravel, boulders and late-lying snow.

There are the glacial glens and high corries, where green lochans lie below great crags of the plateau rim. And at the hill foot grows the ancient Caledonian forest.

Along with the main Cairngorm range between Speyside and Deeside the book covers Lochnagar.

The guidebook includes practical information regarding bothys and accommodation advice, as well as a glossary on gaelic place names and information about sights along the way.

It complements Cicerone's winter climbing guide to the Cairngorms.
