Cairngorms Walks

The Cairngorms: Walks, Trails and Scrambles (Cicerone British Mountains S.) In over 50 walks, this guidebook explores the 23 Munro summits of the region and also the smaller viewpoint hills outside the main range. For the adventurous there are the best of the area's rocky scrambles, and the classic through-routes used by cattle-drovers and Queen Victoria. 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 CairngormsThe Cairngorms (Pocket Mountains) This guide features 40 circular walks in the Cairngorms, once of the most dramatic mountain landscapes in Europe. The plateau that makes up much of the Cairngorms is defined by wild corries, long rivers and some of the highest mountains in Scotland. The routes in this volume take in all of the Munros and many other great hills in and around this National Park. Glen Shee and the Braes o’Angus, Pitlochry to Dalwhinnie, Aviemore and Speyside, Hills of Braemar, Whisky Country.
