Highland Journal. 3 Beyond the Last Munro
This third book in the Highland Journal series follows the success of The Making of a Hillwalker and In My Stride, books which attracted great reviews from Chris Townsend and many others.
This is the third book in the Highland Journal series. Join Jack as he ranges across the Highlands and Islands, exploring the lonely moors and rugged peaks of Sutherland, the Rough Bounds, the Great Wilderness, Mull and Harris; remote places that would challenge the resolve and stamina of any hillwalker.Â
In Book 1, the author got to the top of his first Munro and began his quest to climb all of them. In Beyond the Last MunroÂ he reaches the final one and reflects on his achievement. For those with an interest in climbing these mountains, the books contain a route and relief map for each, as well as a clear index of all the Munros.Some of the chapters record days of high adventure, such as the crossing of the Carn Mor Dearg ArÃªte but there are gentler days on Jack’s ‘Hills of Home’ in Angus, Wester Ross and Assynt; days when the focus is on the author’s passion for the rocks, plant life and wild creatures of the Highlands.Â
The book has the colourful cast of characters readers have come to expect and there are many laughs along the way. A must-have for all lovers of wild places and a book to be treasured.
