Walking before the Independence Referendum of 2014, and writing after the EU Referendum of 2016, he reflects on: nature and history, conservation and rewilding, land use and literature, and change in a time of limitless potential for both better and worse.

Along the Divide 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.

-- Cameron McNeish

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

-- Richard Else, author of Wainwright Revealed

Along the Divide treads that skilful line between serious, important landscape writing and a damned good tale that you can kick back and read for the pleasure of reading.

Beautifully crafted prose with personal insights and amusing detail.
