Tom Weir
An Anthology

Hamish Brown

From his early years Tom Weir MBE was set on making his way as an explorer, writer and photographer, a progress interrupted by World War Two but then leading to expeditions ranging from the Himalayas to Greenland. For over forty years his feature ‘My Month’ appeared in the Scots Magazine, reflecting his fascination with Scotland, its remote corners, people and wildlife – interests that made his award-winning TV programme Weir’s Way so popular. From sources published and unpublished this collection of Tom Weir’s writing has been selected by Hamish Brown from the whole body of his life’s work.

A brand new series "On Weir's Way",  with David Hayman following in the footsteps of Tom Weir,  is being broadcast on STV this autumn and winter.
