The Mountaineering Council of Scotland, the MCofS, represents mountaineers, climbing and hill walking enthusiasts in Scotland. They 'work for Scotland's mountains and mountaineers' by providing a range of services, advice and information.
Scottish Mountaineering Club
Founded in 1889, the SMC uses the wide experience of their members, and other mountaineers to support an active publishing program covering the hills and mountains of Scotland - widely recognised as the best and most extensive series of guidebooks for walkers and climbers.

Maps and books

Ordnance Survey Landranger Maps
I generally use the Ordnance Survey Landranger maps for navigating on the Munros and Corbetts. These maps are at 1:50000, for more detail try the OS 1:250000 Explorer maps.
Pocket Mountain guides
These little books are great. Full of detail, outline maps and historical tit-bits. Seven books cover the Munros and Corbetts, with more books on wildlife, biking, the English hills and of course 'Classic Hill Runs and Races'.
Harvey's Maps
Maps for walkers, made by walkers. Walking, climbing, cycling, orienteering and even a Munro and Corbett chart. When on Skye, I tend to use their Superwalker map as it's at 1:25000, but with just the right amount of detail.
Trail Maps
Trailmaps is a cartography company run by Steve Smirthwaite and based in The Scottish Highlands. Designed for mtb-ers, hikers and cross-country skiers, the waterproof maps are are mainly focused in the Eastern Highlands.
