The Archies


About the book

‘If Munro were alive today he wouldn’t come up with the Munros’. He would come up with the Archies!

In an age of metric mapping, this book explains the rationale for the Archies, and why we believe a 21st century Sir Hugh would have come up with this list. It also describes a momentous and truly memorable relay journey on foot, by bike and by kayak over all 130 of them, with a cuddly rabbit baton. The ARCHIE Mountain Challenge in aid of The ARCHIE Foundation took place over 16 days in 2015.

This is not a guide book, but it does detail a route that others could emulate, in part or in whole. It should appeal to anyone with a love of the outdoors or a spirit of adventure.
