The eastern half of Scotland’s first National Park, including Aberfoyle, The Trossachs and Callander.
60 varied walks through a landscape farmed and fought over by Roman and Viking invaders, missionaries, kings and clans; Colquhons, MacGregors, Macfarlanes and Campbells.
The author’s wealth of experience in searching out good routes for his regular newspaper columns shows in his connoisseur’s choice of walks. These range well beyond established favourite outings through familiar countryside into less frequented corners of the Park. The selection of 60 walks explores the full spectrum of the Park’s landscapes from lochshores to mountain tops, and extends from shorter, milder routes, suitable for family outings or as an introduction to the hills for youngsters, through to full days on Ben More and Ben Lui. There’s ample scope for variation and permutation too.” – Customer review from Amazon.co.uk
This is an exemplary pair of guidebooks, which made me realise I didn’t know the area as well as I thought I did – and also made me wish my photographs could match the quality of those books. Highly recommended.” – Ian Mitchell, Scots Magazine
I have no doubt that these two guides will encourage even more walkers to visit this most glorious part of Scotland and there are enough routes described in each guide to cover a multitude of visits.” – Cameron McNeish, TGO magazine
