The New Book
For over fifteen years Robin Howie`s popular walking column appeared in The Scotsman. Very well known in Scottish hill-walking circles, his knowledge of the Scottish high tops is second to none.
His first book, 100 Scotsman Walks, published by Whittles Publishing Ltd and still in print, covered those first ten years.
Featuring many colour photographs, his second book, Another 100 Scotsman Walks, printed in 2016 with the help of Indie Authors World, relates to the most immediate 5 years; a collection of mostly shorter Walks covering much of Scotland that will appeal to a wider range of walkers, including children and those less active.
Each walk, indicated by a location map, has a guide identifying Ordnance Survey map, distance, height, terrain, start point, time and the all-important refreshment spot.
Completed all or some of the Munros, Corbetts, Donalds, Grahams or Marilyns? Wanting something easier and new? “Doing the Howies” will be bags of fun.
