Torres del Paine and Walking in Croatia, by Rudolf Abrahams

torres_del_paine.jpgRudolph’s latest book would also be a welcome gift for anyone who loves the great outdoors. Torres del Paine (Cicerone, £15) is the complete guide to trekking in Chile’s premier National Park, covering the southern tip of the Andes in Chile and Patagonia with the emphasis on low-impact trekking. Routes include the Torres del Paine itself (10-11 days) as well as a half circuit and other day treks.

There is information on mountain refuges and how to link the routes together, with advice on when to travel as well as safety factors and technical difficulty. Must-see attractions include the magnificent granite spires of the ‘towers’ or torres, vast glaciers and unspoilt forests beneath cloud-streaked skies.

Purchase from Amazon.

Also from Rudolph this summer is the second edition of another guidebook in the same series, Walking in Croatia, which covers mountain walking and trekking in the Dinaric Alps, Istria, Slavonia and around Zagreb (Cicerone, £14).

"If you have Franz Ferdinand on your iPod, then your heart is already dancing to the beat of Scotland’s most vibrant city. For a darker side of Glasgow, listen to the Cinematics’ Strange Education, the music of evil break-ups and rainy afternoons. But even heartbroken, under an umbrella, doomed lovers will sense that Glasgow is the heartbeat of British music, with an equally dynamic arts and design scene. Time for mindless music by Simple Minds over a cup of Lipton’s, a brand created by the tone-deaf Glaswegian tea baron, Sir Thomas Lipton."
