Volume 2 (of 2 volumes) of a selected guide to Scottish rock climbing by well known local on the the scene, Gary Latter. Covers the Isle of Skye, Applecross, Torridon, Gairloch, Coigach and Assynt, Sutherland, Caithness, Lewis and Harris, Pabbay and Mingulay, Orkney.

Some 2400 routes are described, which is good but makes the guide a rather bulky object to haul up multi-pitch climbs. Although there is a good smattering of Diffs and the like, it is probable that this guide will appeal more to those climbing at VS and above, and for the hard climber, many of Scotland's E numbered test pieces are here.

In this new edition the remote nature of the area means that many of the routes are relatively new, the situation is very fluid, and consensus on grades is just emerging. There have been numerous grade adjustments, improvements in descriptions, some topo corrections, and some new routes.

Excellent photo-topos and stunning action photos throughout.

By Gary Latter.
