    Caleb's List: Climbing the Scottish Mountains Visible from Arthur's Seat

    £18.99
    From the summit of Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh, 20 mountains can be seen. These mountains, the 'Arthurs' form Caleb's List. This is not only a guide to climbing the Arthurs, but also the story of how the list came about, and how becoming an Arthurist helped the author in his battle with AIDS.

    Edinburgh. 1898. on the cusp of the modern age. Caleb George Cash mountaineer, geographer, antiquarian and teacher stands at the rocky summit of Arthur's Seat.



    His reason for standing there was to chart which mountains were visible from his point on the summit - The Arthurs. He came up with a list of twenty mountains (all over 100ft/300m high), including Schiehallion and Ben Lomond. Caleb's list was first published in 1899, eight years after Munro published his list of mountains over 3000ft, and since then it has been all but forgotten.



    This book tells the story of how Caleb's list came about and provides directions and route descriptions for those wishing to climb the mountains on the list. More than just a climbing book, this is also the story of a survivor. The author was diagnosed with AIDS at the age of 33, and becoming an 'Arthurist' has helped him carry on with life.
