Mountaineering in Scotland is one of the greatest classics in climbing literature. It records the saga of the early days of Scottish winter and summer pioneering, providing a timeless antidote to modern-day tales of sterile athleticism.

W.H. Murray’s vivid descriptions have an immediacy that transports the reader to some of the most iconic routes in Britain. In this book are the dramatic moments of the mountains, from walking and scrambling among the rough edges of the high mountain to sighting the mirror-sharp clarity of the burn pools in the valleys.

Through his tales of remarkable and addictive climbing adventures, Murray recounts the very essence of what exploratory climbing and deep mountaineering camaraderie is all about.

"Our day’s route led us through snow and ice scenery of deathless beauty. This lives strong in mind, while physical pains and trials, the so-called realities of defeat and victory, have long been forgotten".
