The Mountains are Calling
The Mountains are Calling celebrates hill running in Scotland's Highlands as a sport as traditional as it gets.
Jonny Muir explores the history and culture of the sport, and meets the legends of hill running who are revered for their extraordinary endurance. As he discovers the insatiable lure of the hills, a calling leads him to the supreme test of mountain running: Ramsay's Round a continuous loop of 23 of Scotland highest mountains, to be completed within 24 hours. This book is illustrated with maps and two sections of delightful colour plates.
