This guidebook presents 70 challenging and inspiring routes to climb 143 Munro mountains. Part of a two-part set, this second volume covers the northern Highlands (north of the Great Glen), the Cairngorms and Isle of Skye. Covering popular and lesser-known routes, it is ideal both for Munro-baggers and those who simply love great mountain walking, and is a convenient size for slipping in a rucksack.

The half-day and full-day walks and scrambles range from 7km to 46km (with the option to reduce walking distance on some of the longer routes by cycling the approach). Detailed route description and 1:100,000 mapping is accompanied by information on difficulty, mapping, parking, access and nearby accommodation. The guide also includes handy lists of Munros, by height and alphabetically – perfect for peak-baggers – as well as useful details on Gaelic names. 

Including the mighty Cuillin, Five Sisters of Kintail and dramatic An Teallach as well as the Cairngorms, Torridon, Knoydart, Assynt and Glen Shiel, Walking the Munros volume 2 is an ideal companion to conquering the Munros and discovering the magnificent mountain landscapes of northern Scotland. 

Volume 1 details the other 139 Munros, covering the southern, central and western Highlands and Mull.

  • Activities
    Walking, scrambling, climbing
  • Seasons
    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.
  • Centres
    Braemar, Aviemore, Inverness, Fort William, Skye, Ullapool, Torridon. Through treks and wild camping also possible.
  • Difficulty
    Munros range from straightforward to virtually climbing, with appropriate skills required. Real mountaineering in winter conditions.
  • Must See
    Stac Polly at dawn, sunset over the western Isles, your big grin after doing the In Pin.
