If you’re looking for post-pandemic inspiration, Walk Highlands duo Paul and Helen Webster have just penned another walking guide, this time to Fort William and Glen Coe.
It includes 20 routes in the area, mostly hill walks with some lower-level ones through passes and glens. They range from 4.4 miles to 14.4 miles in distance.
As well as a couple of different ways up the ever-popular Ben Nevis, the guide also directs people to the quieter corners of the area, covering Fort William and the Great Glen, the Road to the Isles, Kinlochleven and the Mamores, and Glen Coe and Glen Etive.
Each route includes plenty of detail about what to expect, as well as OS mapping showing the route clearly in the handy format book. It is also advised to carry the appropriate full-size OS Explorer map alongside the book.
The photography really brings the book to life, with vivid colour shots of the remarkable landscape that have you yearning for the summer and a chance to explore these wild lands.
- Day Walks in Fort William and Glen Coe by Helen and Paul Webster is published on February 4 by Vertebrate Publishing (£14.95).
