Pocket Mountains Hillclimbs on Scottish Highland Roads by John H Mckendrick

This little book describes and maps some of the Scottish Highland's most challenging (and rewarding) hill climbs for road cyclists.

Following on from The Cyclist's Guide to Hillclimbs on Scottish Lowland Roads, this second volume by John H McKendrick features 40 of the best road climbs in the north of the country. As well as established classics like Cairn o' Mount, The Lecht, Bealach Ratagan and, of course, the legendary Bealach na Ba. However, there are some less-known gems and unusual challenges to keep the adventurous roadie on their toes.

This little book celebrates the fact that whilst hill climbs can be hard, they encapsulate the essence of cycling. Your efforts are awarded, first, by the sense of achievement and, second, for the free ride downhill that follows every climb.
