Backpacking in the Scottish Highlands has to be one of the finest pleasures in the hillwalker's life. While day-walkers scurry off back to campsites or B&Bs, the backpacker can carry on into the wilderness, pitching up by a remote lochan or tumbling burn. This book, the fourth in the "Backpacker's Britain" series, takes you on a thorough exploration of the Southern Highlands.
In this work, a total of 30 multi-day routes are covered, ranging from a superb traverse of all the 4000 feet peaks of Scotland, to classic through-routes in the Cairngorms. There are routes for those with just a weekend to spare, as well as longer walks for those with more time to hand. Some of the walks would also make fine one-day challenges for the very fit hillwalker or runner.This work covers all the main mountain regions south of the Great Glen, including the Monadh Liath, Cairngorms, Nevis range, Mamores, Glen Lyon Hills, Arrochar Alps and much more! Fact boxes provide all you need to know to take on the challenge of each route, including how to get there, accommodation at the start, campsites, bothies and hostels, and Tourist Information Centres - this book has it all!
