Wired Guides’ Scottish Rock Climbs showcases 1,760 of the very best trad and sport routes across Scotland, covering a wealth of climbing never before presented in a single volume. Its breadth and scope takes in the Galloway hills; the outcrops of the Central and North-West Highlands; the mountain ranges of Arran, the Cairngorms, Glen Coe, Lochaber, Torridon, Assynt and Sutherland; the sea-cliffs of the north-east and north-west coasts, the Hebrides and the Northern Isles; and historical urban test-pieces at Dumbarton. Each route is presented on a diagram and supported by detailed information which has been gathered and compiled by local activists. It’s the book you need to inspire a lifetime’s worth of rock climbing adventures in Scotland.
