In 1891 Hugh Thomas Munro published his tables of the Scottish 3,000-foot peaks, and ever since the Reverend A.E.
Robertson became the first Munroist (by completing the first ascent of all the mountains listed) there has been an accelerating number of mountaineers seeking to follow in his footsteps.
The listing was updated in 1997, to make a total of 284 mountains, and in this stunning book Irvine Butterfield has selected the most evocative photographs to reveal the individual character of each one, with supporting information such as vital statistics.
All the photographers' work shown here captures that illusive quality which, simply put, is 'the magic of the Munros.'
