The Mountains Are Calling - Jonny Muir
Including maps, beautiful illustrations and colour plates, this record of Jonny Muir's completion of the hill-running route known as Ramsay's Round (24 mountains, in 24 hours!) is a breathtaking tribute to the sport, and to Scotland's mountains.
‘A paean of praise for the mountains and the runners who go there.’
Alastair Humphreys, author of Microadventures and Grand Adventures
‘Simply inspirational... a book we would without hesitation recommend to anyone who has ever toiled up a mountain in Scotland or the Lake District in pursuit of an elusive summit.’
‘A fascinating book that charts the evolution of hill running... The Mountains are Calling not only chronicles the legends and tales of this Cinderella sport of the mountains, but is a passionate appreciation of those wild places that now and then become the arenas for these remarkable athletes.’
Cameron McNeish, WalkHighlands
