Description
Lochaber and Glen Coe, next door to each other on either side of Loch Leven, offer the UK's greatest concentration of really magnificent mountains. From the Black Mount to the Grey Corries, from Ben Nevis to Buachaille Etive Mor, this is country for linking high peak to high peak along sharp and sometimes rocky ridges. Here too are low-level walks between, rather than over, these most spectacular of summits. Gentle footpaths from the Caledonian Canal to the Nevis Gorge and the birch woods of Kinlochleven are just the start. Beyond are great through-routes along empty glens by lonely bothies to the edges of Rannoch Moor. The area is notable for tent or bothy treks that are short (2–4 days), and well supplied with villages, railways and bus stops, but still serious in terms of remoteness and scenery.

• 100 graded routes covering the Grey Corries to Ben Cruachan, including Glen Etive and the Black Mount
• Includes the region’s 43 Munro summits and three scrambles
• Low and mid-level routes illustrated with 1:50,000 Landranger mapping
