The Call of the Mountains by Max Landsberg
Thereâ€™s no shortage of Munro books, to put it mildly, but this brings something different to the Tables (see what we did there?) â€“ and it works rather well. Landsberg doggedly gives every Gaelic name a translation in brackets, often pointing out how the hill fails to live up to its name. But beneath the humour is a real belief in the importance of adventure.

Walking the Corbetts, Volume 2 by Brian Johnson
This volume covers the area north of the Great Glen, where the writer says at least 45 of the best 50 walks on the Corbetts are to be found. Itâ€™s a practical but also handsome tome, and can only help lure people away from routine Munro bagging and into the equally varied and appealing Scottish hills measuring between 2,500ft and 3,000ft.
