Produced in association with the Rambler’s Association and Harvey’s Maps, this brand new series covers some of the most popular walking areas in Britain and Ireland, combining detailed route descriptions with information on the local history and wildlife.
Dominated by the Twelve Bens and the Maum Turk mountain ranges and punctuated by loughs and the Atlantic coastline, Connemara in the west of Ireland is simultaneously barren and breathtaking. The geology, history and natural history of this region is fascinating and the area offers some of the most exciting walking in Ireland.
The introduction gives information about the topography, geology and history of the area, and describes the flora and fauna inhabiting it.
•The main section of the book comprises 30 walks, suitable for all abilities, from young children to experienced walkers. Each walk has a key illustrating principal features, such as level of difficulty and type of terrain, a route profile indicating altitude and distances, as well as a fact file summarising useful information, such as start and finish points, duration, safety advice and points of interest.
•Illustrated with colour maps from leading authority, Harveys, each walk is then described in detail with clear, easy-to-follow instructions. As well as route descriptions, the text gives the history of the main landmarks along the way plus information about the natural history of the area, and is accompanied by stunning colour photographs.
