Mountaineering in Scotland

and Undiscovered Scotland WH Murray


£12.99 
 

Compilation first published by Diadem in 1979. Baton Wicks published this edition originally in 1997. Reprinted 1998 and 2003. Flapped paperback.

Mountaineering in Scotland and Undiscovered Scotland are two of the greatest classics in mountaineering literature, brought together here in one volume.

If mountaineering books are to be measured by their inspirational value then W. H. Murray's two great Scottish classics top the list for climbers and walkers. Bill Murray's vivid descriptions of his Scottish climbing adventures, on ice and rock climbs, mountain walks and scrambles, have an immediacy that transports the reader to some of the most classic and sought after itineraries in Britain.

This is a timeless antidote to modern-day tales of sterile athleticism; a manifesto for bold adventures into the unknown. His vivid descriptions have an immediacy that transports the reader to some of the most iconic routes in Britain. Here are the dramatic and addictive moments of the high mountains, the white magnetism of winter moonlight, the rough warmth of Cuillin gabbro, the mirror sharp clarity of burn pools, the still peace of wilderness evenings and the banter and comradeship of mountain days.

He records the saga of the early days of Scottish winter and summer pioneering, on rock and ice - replete with intrepid and adventurous days on the hill that should encourage even the most addicted climbing-wall lizard. Murray recounts the very essence of what exploratory climbing and deep mountaineering camaraderie is all about.
