The Ochils

The Ochils

Author: Douglas Milne Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/05/2021

Known to the ancient people of Central Scotland as uchel - the high place - the long upland massif of the Ochils rises between the River Forth and the Southern Highlands, with a dramataic escarpment running between the cities of Stirling and Perth. The high rounded hills are cleaved by steep-sided ravines and dotted with castles, standing stones, burial mounds, hillforts and battlesites, making the Ochils a walker's paradise. This collection of 40 routes covers all the main summits as well as the magnificant glens and the two rivers, the Allan and the Devon, which transect them.

Cambridgeshire

Cambridgeshire

Author: Jo Sinclair Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/05/2021

With its hallowed streets, glorious colleges and peaceful riverside walks along the Cam, Cambridge is the jewel in the crown of Cambridgeshire and a richly rewarding city to tour on foot. This is a big county, however, and it is well worth exploring the countryside beyond the glittering city. This guide takes you through the rich heritage of the county's market towns and pretty thatched-roofed villages, along old hilltop tracks and into ancient woodlands, full of interest and beauty. Cambridgeshire is also the lowest and flattest place in England and the straight roads, endless network of dykes and isoloted windmills of the fenlands have a stange minimalist magnetism which is hard to resist.

Carmarthenshire

Carmarthenshire

Author: Julian Rollins Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/05/2021

Carmarthenshire is the largest of the old Welsh counties and nestles between Pembrokeshire and the Gower Peninsula in the heart of South West Wales. Its a land of contrasts; along the coast you'll walk close to the airy edge of tall cliffs, but there are beaches too, some so long you can't see an end to them. And sheltered estuaries, like the heron-priested shores at Laugharne that inspired the poet Dylan Thomas. Inland there are tucked-away valleys and castle-topped hills, open moorland, and ancient woodland that is fizzing with life.

Author: Keith Fergus Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/05/2021

Bordered by the city of Glasgow to the east and the Firth of Clyde to the west, the villages and towns of Inverclyde and Renfrewshire prospered and grew during their textile manufacturing, sugar-refining and shipbuilding glory years. The factories, mills and yards may be quieter now but the natural assets which enabled much of that prosperity are still here. The 40 walks in this guide make the most of the rivers, moors, reservoirs and coastline of this often-overlooked part of Scotland, exploring some impressive industrial heritage and hidden away wildlife-rich havens along the way.
