Guidebook describing a selection of over 100 walks in the Cairngorms National Park and Lochnagar, covering low-level, mid-level and mountain routes (including 18 Munro summits) and both day walks and multi-day treks. From gentle sandy trails to rocky scrambles, the routes suit most abilities, taking in mountains, forests, lochs and moorland.

This guidebook contains over 100 routes for walking in the Scottish Cairngorms. It includes 18 Munro summits and smaller viewpoint hills. Walks range in length from 1 to 26 miles and are graded for difficulty.
For the adventurous there are the best of the area's rocky scrambles, and the classic through-routes including the Lairig Ghru. For those looking for a more gentle alternative, 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 home to exceptional and varied scenery - from the ancient Caledonian forest to the granite plateau, the glacial glens and high corries where green lochans lie below great crags of the plateau rim.
Along with the main Cairngorm range between Speyside and Deeside, the guidebook covers Lochnagar. It includes practical information on snack stops, public transport and accommodation, as well as a route summary table and scrambles summary.
