A selection of thirty easily accessible, done in a day, mountaineering routes in the Scottish Highlands. All of Scotland's classic winter ridges are described in detail, including the Aonach Eagach, Liathach and An Teallach. The big gullies of the Northwest are also included, such as Deep South Gully on Beinn Alligin and Morrison's Gully on Beinn Eighe. All routes fall into the lower categories of climbing grade (I and II), meaning they are perfectly suited for a traditional approach, with just one axe and minimal amount of gear, if any. Three easy climbing routes have been included to provide a step-up from winter hillwalking.
 
The book contains background information and an easy-to-follow description for each of the selected outings. It is laid out in a contemporary format and supplemented with bespoke colour maps and 116 colour photographs showcasing Scotland's spectacular mountain scenery. An ideal book for anyone who has a love for Scotland's mountains, it is perhaps more coffee table than guidebook - at least you wouldn't want to carry it in your rucksack - but with clear maps and absolutely superb photos all taken under those cloudless blue skies that the Highlands in winter are renowned for, it would be a very welcome present.
 
By Garry Smith who has taught climbing and mountain skills for 24 winter seasons in the Highlands, which probably explains the photos.
