My guide book to walks in the Picos de Europa includes walks ranging from easy to strenuous, with clear information about the level of difficulty for each walk, along with some information about how to get there and places to stay.

You can buy my books from  Amazon, Waterstones, Stanfords or the BMC website.  Or you can obtain them directly from me by emailing

The area covered by Book Two is near Nerja and Cómpeta in the far south of Spain. 20 years ago scarcely anybody walked in these hills, but it is now a popular area for British and other hikers, thanks to a network of great paths. Some of these had been abandoned for many years, but were brought back into use by me and my colleagues in the late 1990s.


Book Three, The Mountains of Madrid, covers the area to the north of the capital city of Spain. Most of the walks are within the Sierra de Guadarrama, the mountain range which can be seen from the city centre, and which can be reached within an hour from the city by car or by train. The book was published in February 2020.
