Jacquetta Megarry took up long-distance walking and high-altitude trekking in 1999, and soon afterwards founded Rucksack Readers to deliver walking guidebooks in a rucksack-friendly format. The Great Glen Way was first published in 2001 and was her third guidebook in Scotland. Sandra Bardwell lives in Drumnadrochit, beside Loch Ness and walks the Great Glen Way frequently. In recent years she has written guidebooks for Lonely Planet (Italy, Ireland, France, Scotland, Australia, 1998-2007), Rucksack Readers (Northern England, Ireland and Scotland) and Sunflower Books (Croatia and Poland-Slovakia, 2006).Review:
