The Munro Almanac has become an essential rucksack item for the thousands of hillwalkers and climbers who come to Scotland every year to enjoy the peaks which stand over 3000ft/914m, and which are known as Munros. When Sir Hugh T. Munro, Bart, of Lindertis first published his table of these mountains in 1891, he claimed that there were some 538 such tops, 238 of which he felt merited the status of separate mountains.
Modern surveying has confirmed the total as 277 and "Munro-bagging" is now an established obsession with British hillwalkers. In the best part of a quarter of a century, Cameron McNeish has bagged the lot and in doing so has witnessed some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in Europe. In this second edition he gives concise details on each and every Munro including Gaelic pronunciation, OS map number and grid reference, access point, best route, ditance and ascent, time taken and stalking information. The best base for accommodation is also suggested as well as public transportation options.
Compact, easy to use and handy to pack with the rest of the gear, The Munro Almanac is as essential as a compass when out on the hill.
