Win Chris Townsend's Scotland book

Walkhighlands has teamed up with Cicerone to offer the chance to win one of two copies of their 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, as well as making an ideal Christmas gift.

Whether you are planning a day scramble or a long-distance walk, the Scotland 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. For a chance to win a copy of the new book click here.
