"25 Walks" books are practical guides of Scotland. Written by experienced authors, the carefully selected local walks are accompanied by easy to use maps and colour photographs. "In and around Aberdeen" describes 25 walks in the city and countryside. It takes you to the little-known corners of Aberdeen and to the hills in it and near it. It visits the Sands of Forvie, teeming with bird life, heads for Benachie and the eerie ruins of Gight Castle, goes up the Deeside Line to Crathes Castle, and wanders around the Big Hole - Rubislaw Quarry - from which they dug the Granite City. History, scenery, good walking - they all come together in this book.
