Come by the Hills

Foreword by Robert Macfarlane

Cameron McNeish

Come by the Hills by Cameron McNeish

In Come By The Hills Cameron McNeish shares his journeys through Scotland on foot, by bike and in his wee red campervan. He is still an adventurer, but these days things are a bit different. Reaching summits is still enjoyed, but no longer a priority.

Instead, he takes us on a wide exploration of Scotland’s hills, forests, and coastlines, and the ancient tales that bring a turbulent history to life. He takes us into the loveliest of glens, Etive and Lyon, to our most distant islands in the Hebrides and Shetland, and reminisces on wonderful characters such as Dick Balharry, Finlay MacRae, and the early working-class climbers when they first took to the hills.

‘Observant and witty.’

Muriel Gray

‘Written with humour and clarity. What is obvious is McNeish’s adoration for the wilderness – something that could enthuse even a non-walker to don the old walking boots.’
