Paperback / softback

Description

A guidebook to the best walking routes in the mountains of Torridon in the western Highlands of Scotland.

Based around Shieldaig and Slioch, the 52 day walks include easy walks to routes up Torridon's best summits, including 9 Munros.

This book makes Shieldaig its base and covers the 200 square miles south west of Loch Maree and north of the Achnasheen - Achnashellach - Lochcarron road, as well as Slioch and its environs.

The guidebook offers a wealth of routes of different grades and differing characters between 2 and 14 miles in length.

It is also beautifully illustrated with Peter Barton's original drawings, alongside clear OS map extracts.

Routes described include 11 easy walks, 11 long or high-level walks, ascents of 32 summits over 2000ft and 5 outline suggestions for major ridge walks.

The mountains of Torridon rarely have clearly defined paths to their summits, but the many excellent stalkers' paths take walkers deep into wild territory and often give them a flying start.

To explore this remote and much-loved area of the Highlands fully you need to be prepared to free-range over heather, grass, rock and marsh and this guide will help you find the best ways across the landscape.
