However, this is meant to be a review. Sound and sensible advice is to be found in abundance in the introduction. Walks are described in sparse but extremely usable context, greatly complimented by the author's sketches. So,why a four, rather than a five. The photographs, attractive though the subject's are, become blurred when magnified. In other words, the e-book team have not done the job properly. My eyesight is not what it was as, l am sure, is a problem with many owners of this otherwise, first rate book.
I hope to return to Torridon again next year, alas, I don't have the head for heights I once had and the full traverse of the ridges is now beyond my comfort zone. The beauty of this book is to guide the way to the summits without having to cross more difficult steep ground whilst still completing challenging walks to some stunning viewpoints. There are also many lower level walks for days when the tops are shrouded in cloud.
If you know the Torridon area and key place names somewhat already, or are planning a long trip in the area, or are happy to look up O/S grid references in turn until you hit upon something convenient - go for it. Personally I left this guide in the boot and used the WalkHighlands website instead as another review has suggested. A shame as the quality of the writing in the book is good otherwise.
