This second volume of a two-part series of guides to the Munros details 70 routes to 144 Munros in the Cairngorms and Northern Highlands (north of the Great Glen). Bound in a hard-wearing, waterproof PVC cover, it includes all the popular routes, in areas such as Knoydart, Torridon and on Skye. The guide is ideal for Munro bagging, or for guidance on walking such hills as Ben Macdui, Cairn Gorm, The Angel's Peak, Craig Meagaidh and the Cuillin on Skye.
As well as a thorough introduction with advice for walkers regarding access, transport and accommodation, each route includes information on distance, ascent, and route time; as well as detailed descriptions of the walk, enticing photography and custom-drawn 1:50,000 maps.
The 283 Munros in Scotland mean something different to every walker. Some view the collection as a challenge; will you climb all of Scotland's +3000ft mountains? To some they offer days of exciting adversity, to others a taste of wilderness and the freedom of exploration. To all, the Munros provide beauty, adventure and the pleasure of a great day's walking.
Volume 1 decribes routes on 139 Munros in the southern, central and western Scottish highlands.

Climbed all the Munros? Need a new challenge? Or maybe just a smaller one? Cicerone also has a set of guidebooks to The Corbetts. These are a collection of 221 Scottish mountains between 2500 and 2999ft and are available in a two volume set: Volume 1 covers the Corbetts south of the Great Glen, while Volume 2 explores those to the north.
Munros can be walked year round; but if the midges bite you then avoid summer, and if you are not comfortable on snow then avoid winter.
Braemar, Aviemore, Inverness, Fort William, Skye, Ullapool, Torridon. Through treks and wild camping also possible.
Munros range from straightforward to virtually climbing, with appropriate skills required. Real mountaineering in winter conditions.
