There's Always the Hills

Cameron McNeish

There's Always the Hills by Cameron McNeish

‘A wonderful, personal book.’ -Sam Heughan, star of Outlander

From his home in the Cairngorms of Scotland, Cameron McNeish reflects on a life dedicated to the outdoors.

A prolific author, McNeish has led treks in the Himalayas and Syria, edited The Great Outdoors Magazine, establishing it as Britain’s premier walking publication, created new long-distance walks and made television series, contributed a monthly column to Scots Magazine, campaigned for Scottish independence and raised a family with his wife, Gina.

In this long-awaited autobiography, he candidly recalls the ups and downs of a full life, much of it in the public eye, much of it until now unseen.
