KMLF: Cameron McNeish – There’s Always The Hills

Details

Award-winning mountaineering writer and television presenter Cameron McNeish reflects on a life dedicated to mountaineering, hill-walking and long distance backpacking.

Following his career as an international long jumper, over the last forty years Cameron has written, edited magazines and presented television programmes about walking, climbing and meeting some of the greatest characters of the mountaineering world. A prolific author, he has also led numerous treks to the Greater Ranges of the world and was editor of The Great Outdoors Magazine for over 20 years. He recently candidly recalled the ups and downs of a full life in his best-selling autobiography, There's Always the Hills.

"There's Always the Hills flows like a friendly conversation, shared over three or four single malts, and develops into an engaging tale." - The Great Outdoors Magazine

‘A vivid travelogue through the breathtaking vistas, towering peaks and rugged islands of Scotland and a tribute to the warmth and hospitality of the Scots people... McNeish's encyclopaedic knowledge of the lochs and glens, Highlands and islands, the bealachs and coires and the myriad myths and legends that reside therein is unrivalled.’ -BBC Countryfile Magazine

‘Cameron McNeish's autobiography is everything we hoped it would be, and a "must buy" for anyone who's ever felt the pull of Scotland's Mountains. ’ - Undiscovered Scotland

'There's always the hills' by Cameron McNeish, published by Sandstone Press will be available to buy at our bookshop over the weekend.
