Long out of print, but well worth seeking out by the serious hillwalker (especially if they visit Britain as well as Ireland), this is a gloriously impractical guide to all of the 3000ft mountains and tops in Britain and Ireland presented as a coffee table book (if I'd ever seen anyone actually using it in the field I would have shaken the person warmly by the hand while assuming they had mental issues...a slimline version in paperback without the photos was published later but it is almost impossible to find nowadays). The text is enthusiastic and the photography aims to be realistic rather than aesthetic: that said, much of the latter is superb. The route suggestions are the stuff of legend: never less than entertaining, with many itineraries involving huge distances and a hilarious amount of out-and-back maneuvering to take in outlying summits. They really don't make 'em like this any more...
