The Angry Corrie 25: Nov 1995-Jan 1996
Time to buy things for Christmas (just in case you don't win the quiz...)
Now available in TACshop, all the usual old guff plus the latest hot-off-the-press Skye Bridge T-shirt! (Drawn by Chris Tyler.)
Purchasers of previous shirts will know how hard-wearing these are. Available in sizes XL, L and M, £11.50 each or £14.50 as part of a sub/shirt package. (Note that at the time of writing, we still have a round dozen of the old Killer Sheep shirts remaining: 10 XL, 2M but no Ls. These are still available at the old prices, ie 50p cheaper than those detailed above for the new shirt.)
Also for your Christmas bivvybag...
The first two TACit Tables, The Grahams and the New Donalds and The Murdos, £1.95 each inc p&p (or £3.70 inc p&p the pair). The Grahams and the New Donalds lists two categories of Scottish hill. 224 Grahams between 2000 and 2499 feet, with detailed heights in both metres and feet (updated from the very latest Ordnance Survey data), precise grid references, and relative heights - ie the drop before the next Graham or similar hill. Also 118 New Donalds - Scottish Lowland hills over 2000 feet.
The Murdos more than fills the gap between the dim and distant SMC 1990 Munro's Tables and the next revision (which seems to be awaiting a Labour governemnt...). Whereas the Munros lack definitive criteria for what constitutes a 3000ft hill, The Murdos details all 444 Scottish 3000ft tops with drops of at least 30m on all sides - which leads to some unexpected deletions and additions. As with The Grahams..., all height/name/gridref data is bang up to date. All listings - compiled by TAC's own Alan Dawson - include separate "top twenties" of the highest hills, in both absolute and relative terms, plus details of those hills which miss out by only a small margin.
PC or Mac disks of each booklet are also available. Providing data in Netscape, Excel and plain text formats, these cost £4 a time inc p&p. 10% of all booklet and disk sales will be donated to the John Muir Trust.
