Walks around Gaucin by Patrick Elvin, a new guide to walking in the Gaucin area, has been published and is available on all Amazon platforms.  
An essential guide for those visiting Gaucin, there are walks to suit all levels of fitness ranging from 1 hour to 6 hours and include three of the author's favourite walks in the Serrania de Ronda.
This long-awaited book is the result of 20 years of walking in the countryside around this iconic Southern Andalucian village, during which time Patrick Elvin has acquired an extensive knowledge of the locality. The book (black and white version) contains detailed instructions, maps, photographs, profiles and GPS waymarks for all of the walks. The Gaucin area includes the valleys of the Genal and Guadiaro rivers as well as the Sierra del Hacho, Gaucin's own 1000 metre mountain. With a foreword by the Mayor of Gaucin, there is also general information about the history and geography of the village.
