The 45 walks selected in this guidebook show the variety of the Isle of Arran off Scotland's west coast - ideal for walking with its mountain ranges, moorlands and forests to its coastline and dramatic cliffs, as well as the island's rich historical heritage. The Isle of Arran is often referred to as 'Scotland in miniature'. Its northern mountain ranges contrast markedly with its southern moorlands and forests, while its coastline features placid bays and striking cliffs. Roads are limited in extent, but opportunities to explore on foot abound. This guidebook follows paths into the high mountains, taking in deep glens and rocky ridges. Forest trails are discovered and extensive moorlands are traversed, as the routes reveal the archaeology, history and natural wonders of the island. Background notes indicate where food, drink and accommodation can be found, and the guide also provides information about visitor attractions island-wide and public transport around the island. The walking routes, ranging from easy nature trails to arduous mountain scrambles, provide thorough coverage of Arran, including nearby Holy Isle and its Buddhist retreat. One visit simply isn't enough, and Arran will draw you back time and time again.

A walking guide to the Silverdale and Arnside Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), at the top of Morecambe Bay in Cumbria and Lancashire, overlooking the Lake District. 21 day walks are described between Carnforth, Holme, Milnthorpe and Arnside, climbing wooded hills and limestone escarpments with views of the Lake District fells. Walks are between 2 and 8 miles in length and visit nature reserves including Leighton Moss RSPB reserve, follow the canal and explore the shoreline. Summits include Wharton Crag, Arnside Knott, Farleton Knott and Hutton Roof Crags. The combinations of rocky coastal scenery, woodland and rough limestone hills either side of the M6 in north Lancashire, make this a paradise for walkers. Routes can easily be linked into longer walks and the extensive network of well walked paths enables walks to be shortened or lengthened at will. The area is renowned for its flora and fauna, its historic buildings and interesting geological features.

Walking the Corbetts Vol 1 South of the Great Glen

The Corbetts (Scotland's 2500-2999ft mountains) are every bit as interesting as the Munros (3000ft and over), often clear when the Munros are in cloud, walkable on short winter days and free of the peak-bagging crowds of their taller neighbours. Walking the Corbetts is divided into two volumes. This guide covers the Corbetts to the south of the Great Glen, which runs from Fort William to Inverness and includes the Southern Uplands, Southern Highlands, Cairngorms and also the islands of Arran and Jura. Choosing the best, rather than the quickest routes up each summit the author covers 112 Corbetts described in 95 routes, illustrated with custom 1:100,000 mapping. South of Glasgow and Edinburgh are the moorland hills of the Southern Uplands, where seven peaks rise to Corbett status. In the Southern Highlands plenty of interesting Corbetts provide spectacular views of the Munros with easy access from Edinburgh and Glasgow. The Corbetts of the Eastern Highlands and the Monadhliath Mountains sit in sprawling heather plateaus, ideal for those seeking solitude. The South-West Highlands is known for its rocky peaks in places like Glen Coe and the highlights are probably Arran and Jura, with their similarly rocky and isolated summits.

A guidebook to the rich mix of summer scrambling, rock climbing and winter mountaineering on Scotland's ridges, from the remote Cairngorms to the splendour of the Cuillin. Graceful carved walkways slung between summits, twisted spines of stone - ridges can be the most beautiful of mountain landforms. With elegant lines and giddy exposure, ridge climbs emit a powerful siren call, drawing us out onto the rocks. Life on the edge has a special quality, born of the contrast of empty space all around, and intricate detail in close-up. The crests are strangely irresistible. Scotland's ridges are among the finest mountaineering lines in the country, every one a unique adventure. The variety of these routes reflects the breadth of the mountain experience: a rich mix of summer scrambles, technical rock and challenging winter climbs. This book covers both the popular classics and some obscure gems, aiming to celebrate these thrilling climbs as much as to document them. Along the way it explores landscapes of magnificent diversity, ranging from the remote desolation of the Cairngorms to the seaside splendour of the Cuillin, the great trench of Glencoe to the surreal exhibitionism of the far north. The chosen selection spans the grade range, with routes to suit all levels of ability. Whether an earthbound hillwalker or an accomplished climber, Scotland's ridges cannot fail to stir your imagination.

The 15th July 1889 was a busy day on the Isle of Arran as it was Fair Monday. A number of visitors opted to climb Goatfell though many were put off by the cloud lingering on the summit. It seemed a day like any other, but that evening there would be an tragic event which would lead to one of the biggest man-hunts in Scottish criminal history, as well as a sensational murder trial. Two of the people who set out to climb the mountain that afternoon were John Watson Laurie, a 28-year-old pattern-maker from Coatbridge, and Edwin Robert Rose, a 32-year-old clerk from London. They had met three days previously on the excursion steamer Ivanhoe. Rose’s battered body, ‘the face terribly mangled’, was found three weeks later concealed under a boulder on a remote part of the mountain. The discovery sparked a huge search for Laurie who was subsequently arrested for Rose’s murder after two months on the run. When captured he attempted suicide with a cut-throat razor, then stated: ‘I robbed the man, but I did not murder him.’ This is the story of the Goatfell tragedy and its aftermath, described by the Glasgow Herald as ‘the most remarkable tale of crime and retribution in the annals of Scottish judicial history’.

The Arran Coastal Way is perhaps Scotland's finest circular long-distance trail, running 65 miles (105 km) around the Isle of Arran in a memorable week-long hike from Brodick. It's accessible from near Glasgow by the Ardrossan ferry. Famous as`Scotland in miniature', Arran is rich in scenery, castles, caves and standing stones. The walking is varied, from mountain paths to deserted beaches, from minor road-walking to boulder-hopping, and in places it is refreshingly rugged. Arran's wildlife is uniquely approachable, and its residents welcoming. Our second edition was thoroughly updated during 2017 with many route changes and extra options.A project funded by the Coastal Communities Fund has created many miles of new and improved path with fresh waymarking, leading to this fully revised second edition, released in January 2018.This guidebook contains all you need to plan and enjoy your Arran Coastal Way walk, including a Foreword by wilderness walker Cameron McNeish:detailed description of the route walked anticlockwise, updated for 2018background on geology, pre-history and historywhisky-making, wildlife and habitatsboat trip to the Holy Islenew mapping of the entire route (1:65,000)information about public transport and travellavishly illustrated, with 125 colour photographson rainproof paper.
