Publisher's website 2020

This inspiring guide describes 82 walking routes to the highest points (‘tops’) of the UK's 91 historic counties in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, from Inverness-shire's Ben Nevis (1344m) to Huntingdonshire's Boring Field (80m), visiting 10 national parks and numerous Areas of Outstanding National Beauty, including the Cairngorms, Dartmoor and the Lake District. There are a range of walks for all abilities and something for everyone, wherever they are in the UK, whether at home, on holiday or just travelling through. The graded routes range from strolls over easy ground to mountaineering expeditions. Some rank among the finest summits in the UK: Ben Lomond, Helvellyn, Pen y Fan, The Cheviot, Scafell Pike, Slieve Donard and Worcestershire Beacon. Others appear in unlikely places such as a military firing zone in Yorkshire and a back garden in south-east London and every top has its own story. The author was the first person to reach all 91 tops in one trip without motorised transport and recorded his adventure in his first book ‘Heights of Madness’. Here he shares his routes, top tips and interesting facts about the tops and the historic counties. Illustrated with OS maps, sketch maps and colour photographs.
