The fifth book in the series of eight UK regional cycling guides from author Simon Warren takes readers (and their bikes) to the shores and skylines of South-West England. Plot a route between any two points in this region and its profile is likely to resemble an upturned saw blade – together, the Cotswolds, the Mendips and the exquisite Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks form a perfect hill climber’s playground. In quiet Cornish fishing villages, on top of Bodmin Moor and cresting the Salisbury Plain are legions of punishingly beautiful roads eager to meet their cycling match, and the very best are between these pages. With a list including the dramatic Cheddar Gorge, Gold Hill, Haytor Vale and the fearsome Porlock, this region is one to relish.

A guidebook to the rich mix of summer scrambling, rock climbing and winter mountaineering on Scotland's ridges, from the remote Cairngorms to the splendour of the Cuillin. Graceful carved walkways slung between summits, twisted spines of stone - ridges can be the most beautiful of mountain landforms. With elegant lines and giddy exposure, ridge climbs emit a powerful siren call, drawing us out onto the rocks. Life on the edge has a special quality, born of the contrast of empty space all around, and intricate detail in close-up. The crests are strangely irresistible. Scotland's ridges are among the finest mountaineering lines in the country, every one a unique adventure. The variety of these routes reflects the breadth of the mountain experience: a rich mix of summer scrambles, technical rock and challenging winter climbs. This book covers both the popular classics and some obscure gems, aiming to celebrate these thrilling climbs as much as to document them. Along the way it explores landscapes of magnificent diversity, ranging from the remote desolation of the Cairngorms to the seaside splendour of the Cuillin, the great trench of Glencoe to the surreal exhibitionism of the far north. The chosen selection spans the grade range, with routes to suit all levels of ability. Whether an earthbound hillwalker or an accomplished climber, Scotland's ridges cannot fail to stir your imagination.

A popular walking guide to the Silverdale and Arnside Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), at the top of Morecambe Bay in Cumbria and Lancashire, north west England, overlooking the Lake District. 21 day walks are described and hand-illustrated, between Carnforth, Holme, Milnthorpe and Arnside, climbing wooded hills and limestone escarpments with views of the Lake District fells, visiting nature reserves including Leighton Moss RSPB reserve, crossing the Bay itself to Kents Bank and following the canal. Many are the visitors who have speeded past to more renowned National Parks, who, when they do turn off to Silverdale or Arnside, wonder why they didn't come to this beautiful area before. The combinations of rocky coastal scenery, woodland and rough limestone hills either side of the M6 in north Lancashire, make this a paradise for walkers. There is an extensive network of well walked paths through an intricate rocky landscape, a joy to explore. The area is renowned for its flora and fauna, its historic buildings and interesting geological features. Walks are between 2 and 8 miles but packed with interest, taking longer than their mileage implies, and can be combined for longer days.
