Product Description

Backing the Ben - Ben Nevis is both an icon of Scottish climbing and a major tourist attraction, with more than 100,000 walkers reaching the summit each year. Looking after the mountain, however, is proving a challenge, reports Richard Baynes

Coll calling - Colourful, diverse and with outstanding natural riches, the Isle of Coll is one of the most bewitching of all the Hebridean islands, writes Simon Wellock

Way to go – With a bit of imagination, it’s possible to use Scotland’s network of hill tracks and ancient rights of way to create long-distance walks that are every bit the equal of established trails. James Carron explains

Wildlife & Ecology:
Lost and Found - Penny Bunting discovers how woodland restoration work on a former sporting estate near Loch Ness is helping to create a biodiversity hotspot

Explore: Ardnamurchan
Way out west - With an enticing mix of volcanic history, pristine beaches, ancient woodland and abundant wildlife, the Ardnamurchan peninsula has more than enough to tempt the traveller west, writes Richard Rowe

Peninsula pleasures - Although some shun Ardnamurchan because of its lack of Munros, it hardly matters given the sheer number of other options for enjoying this magical area
