“We’re delighted to announce the arrival of the second edition of Ian’s guidebook. To date well over £4,000 has been raised by sales of the book, in addition to over £35,000 which local volunteers have raised from a series of sponsored hill walks.
All donations through ordering the book are greatly appreciated and go a long way to help the work of Macmillan.
The Group would like to thank Ian Oxton for his kind donation of the book to our fundraising effors and for his hard work”

This accessible pocket guide was created to give both locals and visitors the confidence to tackle some of our wonderful West Highland hills. The guide evolved from a very popular annual series of sponsored Munro walks which raised considerable funds for Macmillan Cancer Support; it provides a structured choice of walks on well-pathed and easily navigable routes. The routes suggested are all suitable for inexperienced hillwalkers in summer conditions but doesn’t rule out encountering snow at any time of year so clear safety advice is provided too.
We’re delighted to now be able to offer the second edition of Ian’s guidebook on our Fundraising Group’s page. To date, well over £4,000 has been raised by sales of the book, in addition to over £35,000 which local volunteers have raised from a series of sponsored hill walks.
