    DescriptionThe West Highland Way is one of the finest of Britain's long-distance paths. It passes through six separate mountain ranges, from the tall elegant cone of Ben Lomond and the crag towers of grim Glen Coe to the seductive Mamores. But does it go onto those enticing Stobs and Bens? It does not. It runs along Glens Falloch and Finnan, close to the Highlands' second busiest main road and the West Highland Railway. It may be Scotland's best long-distance path: but this book intends to do better. So here they are: the mountains alongside the way. When the sun shines, and the twitter of the skylarks is more appealing than the endless road noise, here are Ben Lomond and Beinn Dorain, the charming Campsie Fells, and the mighty Mamores, and the best pub-to-pub in these islands, the crossing of the Black Mount from Inveroran to Glen Coe. It features mountain alternatives to all but one of the WH Way stages. It contains 5 one-day hill circuits and 2 two-day routes for warm-up trips with the tent. It offers tips for first-time backpackers.
