Outdoor Writers Guild Book of the Year 2008. History, geology, fairy stories and seventeen different routes up Ben Macdui. From a deluded earl and a Munro-bagging Queen Victoria to the domestic life of the snow bunting, this is an entertaining, admiring and often very funny portrait of Britain's second highest mountain. Descriptions of the ways up alternate with accounts of climbers and cattle thieves, the Grey Man and the Wolf of Badenoch, all adding up to a rattling good read.
Dimensions: 170 x 120 x 19 mm
