Book: The Ochils 40 Favourite Walks
Known to the ancient people of Central Scotland as uchel (the high place), the long upland massif of the Ochils rises between the River Forth and the southern highlands with a dramatic escarpment running between the cities of Stirling and Perth.
The high rounded hills are cleaved by steep-sided ravines and dotted with castles, standing stones, burial mounds, hillforts and battle sites, making the Ochils a walker's paradise. This collection of 40 routes covers all the main summits as well as the magnificent glens and the two rivers, the Allan and the Devon, which transect them.
The book is written by Douglas Milne. The paperback pocket book measures 10.5cm x 14.8cm so easy to carry while on your travels and light enough to post as a gift.
