R182 R168 Discovery Miles 1 680 Save R14 (8%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The Isle of Skye (or Ant-Eilean Sgitheanach in its native Gaelic tongue) occupies an almost mythical place in the minds of many Scots. Romantic castles, magnificent sea-scapes, the alpine peaks of the Cuillin Ridge, marching pipe bands, scattered white crofters' cottages and a bloody history; the island has all these and more. This book features 40 moderate walks that take in much of this celebrated landscape, but reveal hidden gems too. In spite of its popularity Skye is still rich in undiscovered treasures, from coastal caves and arches, ruined villages cruelly cleared of their inhabitants, to fossilised dinosaur footprints and a rich array of wildlife. Written by Skye residents Paul and Helen Webster, these walks will reveal both the wild and gentler sides of this dramatic landscape.

R206 R189 Discovery Miles 1 890 Save R17 (8%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The Climbing Chronicles record the 1940s climbing exploits of Harry Parker. Born in Blackburn on 29 February 1916, Harry started climbing before the war and continued to do so after its conclusion, exploring the Peak District, Wales, the Lake District and Scotland. Each night he noted down his adventures in his 'chronicles', recording the routes he climbed, the walks, bicycle rides and journeys he undertook, and the people he met along the way. Harry's remarkable diaries have now been transcribed by his son John, and the resulting Chronicles offer a first-hand view of climbing and walking in Britain in the 1940s. With an enthusiasm for the outdoors and a sense of fun that springs from every entry, The Climbing Chronicles is an entertaining and fascinating - not to mention quirky - read.

Pilgrims frequently describe their hike in the Holy Land as a life-altering experience. After their journey a group of pilgrims from Italy wrote: "When we completed the hike of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela - Way of St. James, we were excited. But it was nothing compared to what we felt when we ended our hike of the Land of Jesus in the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem". The Golan Trail is one of Israel's most beautiful trails. It starts on Mt. Hermon 2,000 meters above sea level, and ends by the Sea of Galilee, 200 meters below sea level. You will hike on roads and alongside aqueducts built by the Romans. The region's basalt plateau is one of the largest in the world. The Golan trail is 130 km long, rich in fauna and flora. The best time to hike the trail is late winter and spring.

R392 R354 Discovery Miles 3 540 Save R38 (10%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This work presents the mountaineering literature. The perennial mystery of Mallory and Irvine on Everest receives an intriguing twist in a reconstruction of their fateful climb written virtually in Mallory's own words. Drawn from the climber's letters, writing and Mallory's background as a classicist, this is a near forensic examination of the evidence and points to one firm conclusion. The book is a prose poem full of parody and allusion but enjoyable at any level, in which the author offers his case for Mallory & Irvine having got to the top. There is a second half to the book, almost as interesting and of the same length as the first, in which the evidence for the first ascent is presented informatively and very persuasively. The book is bound to create a stir - its prose poem format, the strong parody element and the firm conclusion about Mallory & Irvine's success will all be controversial. The most detailed and convincingly presented account so far, of what happened on Mallory's last climb on Everest. It is quite unlike any other work of literature. And yes, it does have a surprise ending. It is shortlisted for the 2006 Boardman Tasker Award for mountaineering literature.

The Moray coastline has a string of superb sandy beaches, and towns such as Buckie, Lossiemouth and Nairn (historically part of Morayshire) have long been popular for family holidays. For the walker there are cliffs, arches and stacks as well as sand and dunes, whilst offshore it may be possible to glimpse the famous Moray Firth dolphins. Set back from the coast are fine stone-built towns such as Forres and the small Cathedral city of Elgin. From here heading southwards the character of the countryside changes to one of wide, spacious glens and sweeping, purple heather moors and hills. This is Speyside - Malt whisky country par excellence. The main centres here are Keith, Aberlour and attractive Dufftown, as the hills slowly merge into the Cairngorms National Park. This latest pocket guide features 40 of the best walks in this popular area in an attractive and accessible format.
