This sturdy little A6 guide comes with a half-Canadian style cover which means it now has a handy spine (all the better to spot on the bookshelf!) whilst still retaining its characteristic wirobinding. Okay, so it might be a bit too chunky for carrying around in the rucksack, but it’s worth keeping as a handy reference alongside your maps and guidebooks. Its 170 full colour pages are packed with information – making it a must for the outdoor enthusiast!
