The Northern Highlands Central (SMC) climbing guidebook covers both summer and winter routes in the Northern Highlands Central area of Scotland. 

Detailing climbs in the area from Gairloch to Inverness, An Teallach, The Fannaichs, Carnmore and Slioch, the Northern Highlands Central (SMC) guide gives comprehensive climbing information on areas of Scotland that have never been documented before. It is part of a three volume set of guidebooks to the Northern Highlnads. There is an abundance of rock climbing on the popular crags around Gruinard Bay, Poolewe and Gairloch, and together with the rock and ice climbing on the Scotland mountain cliffs around An Teallach and Carnmore there's plenty to go at.
