Walking with Wildness Summary

Walking with Wildness: Experiencing the Watershed of Scotland by Peter Wright

The Watershed of Scotland is a line that separates East from West and divides those river basin areas which drain towards the North Sea on the one hand, and those which flow west into the Atlantic Ocean on the other. It meanders from Peel Fell on the English border all the way to the top at Duncansby Head: over 754 miles (1,200km) through almost every kind of terrain. The Watershed follows the high ground, and offers wide vistas down almost every major river valley, towards towns and communities, into the heartlands of Scotland. Walking with Wildness leads the reader through breathtaking, hitherto mostly unknown landscapes, providing valuable advice for walkers on the way.

Walking with Wildness Reviews

A remarkable and incredible journey which others most surely want to tackle. - STV

Peter Wright has done lovers of wild places a great service in providing the first comprehensive description of the Watershed. - THE GREAT OUTDOORS on Ribbon of Wildness

In this new work, the final walk, takes the watershed northwards and is set on Orkney. The wilderness of Scotland offers something special to walkers, nature-lovers and indeed, to any thoughtful, reflective human-beings. - LOTHIAN LIFE
