Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Maps;
From the cover: Wilderness is much more than simply land untouched by man, it is a place where we can enjoy the simpler things in life: peace, beauty and space, wildlife and the natural world. For some people wilderness walking is about challenge, for others it is simply a break from everyday routines, but for everyone it is about enjoying themselves.
Wilderness Walks contains twelve great routes set in Scotland, beautifully illustrated with lavish panoramic photographs which were specially taken by wilderness photographer Colin Prior. All the routes take between two to four days and have been walked afresh for this book by Cameron McNeish or Richard Else, both keen walkers and climbers.
Each walk is described in detail and its history, scenery, atmosphere and special character are shared with the reader. Practical advice on transport, what to look out for, which map to use, hotels and restaurants in the area and essential equipment required are given where appropriate and highlighted in information panels. There are also informative sketch maps showing each route and the surrounding area in clear detail.
At least four of the routes in Wilderness Walks feature in the television series of the same name: Knoydart, the Cairngorms, Letterewe (known to hill walkers as the great wilderness) and the Isle of Mull. Other walks include the Blackmount, the Isle of Skye, the Isle of Harris, the Minigaig, Loch Mullardoch, and the ancient Rathad nam Meirlach, the thieves road, just below Britains highest mountain Ben Nevis.
Whether you explore the wilds at first hand or sample the beauty and magic from the comfort of your armchair, Wilderness Walks will prove an invaluable guide.
