Virtual Shop:

Before you head off into the mountains, you may consider selecting a few items to take with you. Click on item to pack.

The Institue Geographique National's 1:25,000 map. A map is one of the "Seven Essentials". The Institue Geographique National produced reasonably good 1:25,000 maps that had contours a 50m intervals and hiking and cycle route overlays, though beware, there are many other routes not marked on the map. These hand drawn maps have been replaced by digital 1:20,000 maps.

Click on the map cover to take a map with you and will provide a on-line map to help you on your virtual tour. This mapping function here is provided by Google Maps and for those with the plug-in, Google Earth provides some 3D landscaping.

I will be delighted to receive feedback, good or bad. Please email
