200 Challenging Walks in Britain and Ireland

The finest mountain,moorland,hill & coastal walks in the UK


200 Challenging Walks in Britain and Ireland is a collection of the finest wild walks in the British Isles. The routes are selected from the classic and definitive Walks series of guidebooks: Classic Walks, Wild Walks and Big Walks. Whether you are an accomplished mountaineer or first-time hiker, the walks featured will allow you to discover remote isolation, negotiate technical scrambles and enjoy quintessential hill expeditions. They range from the hills and clifftops of southern England to the river valleys of Wales. There are island excursions in the Hebrides and trips to the clifftops of Ireland's wild Atlantic coastline.

The book concludes with the ultimate British mountain expedition the infamous Cuillin Ridge on Skye. The only true 'alpine' route in the UK, this is the dream target for many mountain walkers, climbers and fell-runners. Each walk is clearly described and plotted on a bespoke map, with notes on difficulty, escape routes, transport and accommodation. There are also 32 character-filled colour photos.

Whether you choose 'an exceptionally long and tough walk over high and remote mountains' or 'a fine day's walk along rock escarpments, moorland edges and a beautiful river valley', Gilbert's succinct but passionate prose will encourage a true spirit of adventure.

Richard Gilbert is an award-winning writer, and the author of many guides and books on walking, exploration and survival both in the UK and across the globe. As a student he became president of the Oxford University Mountaineering club and has continued to trek, walk and climb ever since. He was the 100th person to climb all the Munros Scotland's peaks over 3,000 feet and is a past winner of the infamous Welsh 1,000-metre Peaks Race.
