The Archies - Scotland's 1000m Mountains

Scotland's 1000m hills - of which there are only 130 (as opposed to 282 Munros) and they do not include the Inaccessible Pinnacle!
The Archies is the named coined for Scottish Hills over 1000m. In an age of metric mapping, this book explains the rationale for the Archies, and why the authors believe a 21st century Sir Hugh would have comeup with this list. It also describes a momentous and truly memorable relay journey on foot, by bike and by kayak over all 130 of them, with a cuddly rabbit baton. The Archie Mountain Challenge in aid of The Archie Foundation took place over 16 days in 2015. 
This is not a guide book but it does detail a route that readers could emulate, in part or in whole and will appeal to anyone with a love of the outdoors or a spirit of adventure.
The good thing about The Archies for the time pressed hill walker is that there are only 130 of them (as opposed to 282 Munros) and that the list does not include the Inaccessible Pinnacle!
Includes a free map showing all The Archies with a tick list.
