Back cover text:

Meet Baffies - the Entertainments Convenor of the Go-Take-A-Hike Mountaineering Club. Named after his footwear of choice*, he's allergic to exertion, prone to lassitude, suffers from altitude sickness above 600m, blisters easily and bleeds readily. Show him a mountain and he'll find the easiest way up it. It's a gift of which he is justifiably proud and one whose fruits he has now been persuaded to share with like-minded souls.

You'll find no easier way to climb Munros than to follow in his footsteps.

This rucksack guide features:
Detailed descriptions of easy walking routes to the summits of 25 Southern Highlands Munros
Annotated colour photographs and OS maps
Fascinating facts on landscape, history, Gaelic pronunciation and much more

The perfect guidebook to Scottish mountains for the hillwalker who wishes to avoid rock climbing, scrambling and vertigo.

*Baffies: a Scottish term for slippers

Reviews:


While the premise of the book has a humorous side... what you find within the covers of this slim volume is a truly outstanding guide book.  Undiscovered Scotland

Pocket-sized with little room for superfluity, yet packed to bursting with concise information and route descriptions, there should be room for this guide in every couch potato's rucksack.  John Manning, OWPG
