Fife Coastal Path, Sandra Bardwell and Jacquetta Megarry - The Fife Coastal Path runs around the coastline of eastern Scotland for 117 miles (188 km) from Kincardine on the Forth to Newburgh on the Tay. Starting west of the magnificent Forth bridges, the route heads through former mining towns towards the villages of Fife's East Neuk (corner), with their rich tradition of smuggling and fishing. After rounding Fife Ness, the route follows the coastline north-east through St Andrews, golf capital of the world and former religious centre of Scotland. Fife has long played an important part in Scottish history and the route passes many castles, towers and churches. There are splendid views along the coast and over the Firths of Forth and Tay, with great chances to sight seabirds, seals and dolphins. The villages have welcoming pubs, famous fish-and-chip shops and good B&Bs. Transport by train and bus makes for easy access throughout. The guidebook contains everything you need to plan and enjoy your holiday on foot, or bike where cycling is appropriate: details of each section showing distance, side-trips and food/drink stops background on history, landscapes and wildlife planning information for travel by bus, train, car and plane lavishly illustrated, with 80 colour photographs map of the entire route rucksack-friendly format, and printed on rainproof paper.

Angus Coastal Trail, James Carron - Angus has a proud maritime heritage and a wonderful coastline to explore. While a formal coastal path remains in development there are plenty of well-trod seaside paths and cliff top trails linking fine beaches, dramatic geological features and secluded coves, all with a story to tell. This book links up these paths and tracks to create a 68km route, one that stretches from Broughty Ferry, in the south, to the mouth of the River North Esk, the county’s northern boundary. From the Firth of Tay, the mouth of Scotland’s longest river, sandy beaches, backed by a gently rolling grassy hinterland, give way to more rugged and dramatic scenery. Beyond the harbour town of Arbroath, spectacular cliffs, interspersed with craggy coves, secret caves and unique geological features, rise from the insistent ebb and flow of the tide. The coastline reaches its highest point at Red Head, a towering sandstone promontory. From there, the terrain softens again, the forgotten hamlets of Ethie Haven and Corbie Knowe lying at the southern end of Lunan Bay, a sweep of golden sand. However, a more exposed and inhospitable stretch leads round the coast to Scurdie Ness lighthouse, standing guard over the entrance to the county’s busiest port, Montrose. Fully illustrated, this guidebook includes clear mapping and a wealth of background history, geography and wildlife information, plus practical advice on accommodation, public transport and places to eat and drink.  Published October 13.

Walking Deeside, Donside and Angus,  Mary Welsh and Christine Isherwood - A completely new guide to a delightful part of Scotland much visited but seldom explored extensively on foot. The authors set out to prove that these wide areas of imposing mountains and endless forests offer plentiful opportunities for average walkers to find accessible and rewarding expeditions. Whether it is strolling beside fast-flowing rivers, or clambering triumphantly to a magnificent hill-top viewpoint or simply discovering the magic of the coastal sand-dunes, here is the key to active enjoyment of a region rich in scenic contrasts and teeming with wonderful and sometimes rare wildlife.  Published April 07 Walking in the Ochils, Campsie Fells and Lomond Hills, Patrick Baker - As rugged and spectacular as they can be tranquil and picturesque, the Campsie Fells, the Ochils and the Lomonds are the most accessible hills in Scotland's Central Belt. Despite their close proximity to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth, these three ranges remain a remarkably uncrowded wilderness area. Combining a rich mixture of open moorland peaks, steep sided glens, fast flowing burns and lush woodland, few other areas can treat the hillwalker to such diverse scenery and varieties of animal and plant life in the space of a single day's outing. This guide describes 33 contrasting walks that will take the walker over the three ranges. The majority of these walks are circular. Published June 08

The Fife Coast Path, Mike Salter. Limited availability. Published January 08.

Rob Roy Way from Drymen to Pitlochry, J Megarry - This long-distance walk from Drymen to Pitlochry was developed by Rucksack Readers in partnership with walking enthusiasts. It runs for 79 miles (126 km) along some of Scotland's finest lochs and glens, using historic footpaths, a cycle route, forest tracks and some minor road. Many places are linked with Scotland's most famous outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor (1671-1734). The route has no official status, but was negotiated with private landowners, Forest Enterprise, Stirling and Perth Councils and others. The Way offers superb views, but is less strenuous than the West Highland Way. It is not fully waymarked as such, but the book gives detailed directions and most of it is straightforward. Walkers are always advised to carry a compass, but are unlikely to need it unless walking an exposed section in winter. This book contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday: background on Rob Roy MacGregor, history, heritage and wildlife; summary of each section showing distance, terrain and food/drink stops; drop-down map showing the whole route in five panels; visitor attractions and hills to climb (Munros, Corbetts and Grahams); special notes for people with no previous experience; planning information for travel by car, train, bus or plane; foreword by Sir David Steel, Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament; in full colour, with over 60 photographs; waterproof paper throughout. Limited availability.
