A walking guide to 40 of the best small mountains in Scotland, UK, under 3000ft, with various ascents all accessible to non-climbers. The popularity of Munro- bagging - climbing all the mountains in Scotland over 3000ft - has left many of Scotland's finest mountains overlooked by walkers, purely because they lack a few metres in height. This book champions just some of Scotland's best smaller mountains. It splits Scotland into seven areas - Sutherland and the far north, Torridon, Lochaber, the Great Glen, the Cairngorms, Glencoe, Arrochar, the Trossachs and the islands (Skye, Eigg, Mull, Arran) - with routes in each, so that, wherever you are, there are some of Scotland's best small mountains to explore. With routes that range in length and difficulty and alternative options given there is something for everyone whether you're an experienced walker or new to Scotland's mountains.
