The Munros - the definitive new hill guide from the SMC

The fourth edition of this classic guide not only offers the most detailed and comprehensive route descriptions to Scotland's 3000-foot peaks available in print, but it looks great too, with a smart layout and quality photography. This is the best Munros book yet produced, says Dan Bailey.
