Press Reviews

‘700 miles of rough, untracked wildness where the waters flow west on one side and east on the other. In walking along the spine of Scotland he has discovered the country's heart.'

Not simply a long-distance walker but a fine writer who can evoke both the physical and mental journeys such undertakings entail.'
