Last chance to win Scotland book

There are only four days left to enter Walkhighlands' competition to win Chris Townsend’s new guidebook, Scotland. The competition ends on 31 December, and offers the chance to win one of two copies of Cicerone’s latest guide in the World Mountain Ranges series, Scotland, by legendary walker Chris Townsend.

This 560-page magnum opus is the comprehensive guide to all of Scotland’s regions for the mountain adventurer, from the Southern Uplands to the Cairngorms, Torridon and the jagged peaks of Skye. Illustrated with superb photographs, the book was seven years in the making and is set to become a bible for all Scotland’s hillgoers.

Whether you are planning a day scramble or a long-distance walk, Scotland World’s Mountain Range guide has the information the independent mountain lover needs:

• area-by-area descriptions of the Scottish mountains from south to north to help you identify the best locations for hill walking, mountaineering and ski touring:
• classic ascents and walks described, from scrambles up Ben Nevis to ski tours in the Cairngorms
• information on accommodation, maps and guides
• a planning tool for long-distance treks in Scotland

Author Chris Townsend is one of the UK’s best known walkers and outdoor writers; in 1996 he became the first person to complete a continuous walk over all the Munros and Tops. Chris is president of the Mountaineering Council of Scotland. Enter the competition to win the book on Walkhighlands here.
