Special Order—Subject to Availability

Baffies’ Easy Munro Guide to the Cairngorms is the third volume in Ralph Storer’s inspirational series of guidebooks dedicated to finding the easiest way up Scotland’s highest mountains. This volume covers the Cairngorms National Park with hand-picked routes that will guide you to the summits of 25 rewarding Munros in all corners of the Cairngorms Range.

Each route is described in detail and accompanied by an annotated OS map, full-colour photographs with the route marked on them and sidebars on particular points of interest. 

Named after his footwear of choice*, Baffies is the alter ego of experienced and respected guidebook writer Ralph Storer. He is allergic to exertion, is prone to lassitude, suffers from altitude sickness above 600m, blisters easily and bleeds readily. In short, he is the ideal companion for those new to Munro bagging, whatever their age or temperament. If he can make it to the summit, so can any couch potato.

* Baffies: a Scottish term for slippers

Despite being a Sassenach by birth, Ralph Storer has lived in Scotland since studying psychology at Dundee University. Before becoming a full-time writer, he worked in the field of commercial and educational computing, initially as a computer programmer and more recently as a lecturer at Napier University of Edinburgh. He is an experienced hill-walker who has hiked and backpacked extensively around the world. His guidebooks to the Scottish Highlands, which includes best-selling 100 Best Routes on Scottish Mountains, have become standard reference works on the subject.
