Guidebooks for Scotland
Scotland is an immensely mountainous country that has a rich variety of rock climbing and mountaineering venues. These range from the bubbly rhyolite crags in Glen Coe to the vast granite corries in the Cairngorms, and the blocky quartzite cliffs in the Northern Highlands to the varied schist outcrops in the Central Belt. The islands also provide plenty of climbing, ranging from the mountain granite of Arran to the immaculate gneiss in the Outer Hebrides, and the spectacular sandstone sea cliffs and stacks in Orkney and Shetland.
All of these rock climbing guidebooks for Scotland are in stock (unless otherwise stated) and are dispatched within 2 working days (usually 24 hours) from the UK.
