Scottish Bothies can be found all over the Highlands & Islands, tucked away in some of the remotest corners of the country. Open to all and maintained by a charity, this network of shelters offers unglamorous accommodation to those who like to adventure in wild and lonely places.
Bothy expert Geoff Allan, author of The Scottish Bothy Bible, has followed it up with a collection of his favourite walks which just happen to have a built-in Bothy stopover. Find out how to visit places you may never have otherwise known about, what to expect when you get there and the best routes to follow. The book includes Geoff’s own beautiful photographs which will further inspire you to give Bothying a go. ~ Greg Hackett
A follow-up to best-selling The Scottish Bothy Bible this beautifully illustrated walking companion selects the ultimate best walks to the best bothies, with detailed maps. Using the bothy as the reference point Geoff Allan guides the reader on a mix of day walks and multi-day adventures to his favourite bothies highlighting the incredible wildlife, geography, history and culture that you will find along your walk.
Each walk contains an informative description of the route and bothy, a map highlighting the points of interest along the route and detailed route descriptions.
With sensational new photography plus directions, maps and GPX downloads, this is a beautiful and practical book, for adventurers, armchair explorers and lovers of wild lands.
