Synopsis

A guidebook to 100 walking routes around Ben Nevis and Glen Coe, on either side of Loch Leven in Lochaber. The region's 43 Munro summits are covered, including 3 scrambles. Routes are clustered in 10 areas including Fort William and Glen Nevis, the Aonachs, the Mamores, Kinlochleven, Glen Coe, Glen Etive, Black Mount and Ben Cruachan. All the areas have routes highlighted on overview maps. All routes are graded for difficulty, and arranged between short, easy strolls and long, challenging walks with overnight bothy stays. The Lochaber area offers the a great concentration of magnificent mountains. From the Black Mount to the Grey Corries, from Ben Nevis to Buachaille Etive Mor, this is country for linking high peak to high peak along sharp and sometimes rocky ridges. Here too are low-level walks between, rather than over, these most spectacular of summits. Gentle footpaths from the Caledonian Canal to the Nevis Gorge and the birch woods of Kinlochleven are just the start. Beyond are great through-routes along empty glens by lonely bothies to the edges of Rannoch Moor. The area is notable for tent or bothy treks that are short (2-4 days), and well supplied with villages, railways and bus stops, but still serious in terms of remoteness and scenery.
