Year of Natural Scotland

2013 is the Year of Natural Scotland. Many organisations and individuals will be working to highlight Scotland's stunning natural beauty and biodiversity, and promote ways in which visitors can enjoy our beautiful landscapes, wildlife and heritage responsibly.

Publishing Scotland is getting involved with an exhibition (11 May to 21 July) and book festival (15 and 16 June) and we are also going to showcase one of our books from Scotland every month.

Walks: The Trossachs and East Loch Lomond by Luke Williams (Hallewell Publications)

The area covered by this guide (much of it now a National Park) is one of the most popular walking districts in Scotland, and its hills, lochs, glens and woodlands provide an enormous range of routes within a small area. Walks range from 0.5 miles to 15 miles (1-24km). Routes include hill climbs such as Ben More & Stob Binnein, Ben Ledi, Ben A�an and Ben Lomond, plus a number of shorter walks around the towns of Killin, Callander and Aberfoyle, routes by Lochs Katrine and Lomond and sections of the West Highland Way.
Walk the Trossachs and East Loch Lomond is available from BooksfromScotland.com and your local bookshop.
