This fourth book in the Backpacker’s Britain series takes trekkers, backpackers (and fellrunners) on a thorough exploration of the Central and Southern Highlands of Scotland with all its wild mountains, rocky coasts and long, winding glens.
It offers a range of trekking routes from a superb traverse of all the 4000ft peaks, to classic through-routes in the Cairngorms and many weekend circuits over the highest peaks in Britain – all within a couple of hours’ drive of Edinburgh or Glasgow.
Packed with information, this guide is all you need to plan your next wilderness trip.
