    This guidebook describes 62 routes, most of which involve fairly challenging ascents of peaks or mountain traverses. The routes are concentrated in the rugged terrain in Scotland's north west peninsula, taking in the splendid peaks of Suilven and Quinag, but also include the most interesting peaks to the east, such as Morven and Scaraben. The guide also describes three longer mountain traverses (34 - 56km) and three of the best low-level walks.

    The walks are grouped firstly under geographical area headings, and secondly under mountain massifs. The majority of walks described are ascents of peaks or mountain traverses, they involve rough terrain and a reasonable level of fitness and experience of mountainous country is required.

    The counties of Ross and Cromarty, Sutherland, and Caithness, form Scotland's north west peninsula. Stack Polly, Suilven and Ben Loyal have been favourite peaks for generations and many come to the far north to enjoy the unique scenery with its knobbly gneiss moors, jutting peaks, rugged coastline and unspoilt villages.
