This book is informative and is written in an enjoyable style. It has what seem to be very clear strip maps at the end of each section. However the route laid out here is extreme and would not be suitable for most people planning to do this walk.

I bought it looking for an innovative Scottish route, but what it suggests is recommended only for very experienced mountaineering types, who have excellent wilderness skills. I found this very disappointing but if you're looking for real adventure this could be perfect for you!
