Winner of the Outdoor Writers GUld Award for ExcellenceIn this new book on pre-mountaineering ascents and near ascents in the Highlands, we have at last a work which does justice to those who lived and worked, travelled and fought in the Highlands before Walter Scott. PROF. BRUCE LENMANMarvelous account of mountaineering's prehistory… as coulourful as it is thought provoking – THE SCOTSMANThis work tells the story of explorations and ascents in the Scottish Highlands in the days before mountaineering became a popular sport – when Jacobites, bandits, poachers and illicit distillers traditionally used the mountains as sanctuary.
