Description

The aim in this series of books is to provide the mountainbiker and walker with information on an intended route so they know something of what to expect.

One of the problems is that O.S. maps give no indication as to whether an 'other road' is metalled, a path or a forest fire break, or anything in between. Many bridges shown on O.S. maps do not exist. Rivers are difficult to judge in size from the map, and a building may be anything from a pile of stones to a maintained bothy. All is revealed without removing the sense of adventure and exploration.

Gradient profiles help to assess how strenuous a route is, and each hand-drawn page contains a wealth of information.

The object is to save wasted leisure time and enable the armchair explorer to plan ahead or relive experiences.

The Glens of Argyll includes: Lorn, Oban to Inverary, East of Loch Awe and Cowal, Knapdale, and Kintyre.

  • Seasons
    All year round, but take care of highland winter conditions.
  • Centres
    Ballachulish, Connel, Oban, Lochgilphead, Inveraray, Tyndrum, Crianlarich
  • Difficulty
    The routes are in and around the glens so are not high mountain routes and can all be walked or mountain-biked.
  • Must See
    Stunning Loch Etive, moody Loch Awe. Loch Fyne oysters.
