The Top 500 Summits: A Lifetime of Hillwalking by Barry K Smith, £25

WE ARE all familiar with mountain lists such as the Wainwrights, Munros and Corbetts but Barry Smith set out to create one combined list to include all mountains more than 2,500 feet in Britain and Ireland with a drop of at least 500 feet on all sides. From the highest, Ben Nevis, to the lowest, Knockanaffrin in Ireland, this guide follows Barry's personal journey over all 500 summits. Other walkers who have shared in some of Barry's adventures also contribute to this unique book.

This book contains a fabulous collection of photographs. It will provide interesting and entertaining reading for regular hill walkers as well as the many thousands of people who go walking in the mountains of the British Isles on an occasional basis. Part coffee table guidebook and part personal account, this is a book for anyone who loves the mountains of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
