Scotland End to End - Walking the Gore-Tex Scottish National Trail (Hardcover): Cameron McNeish, Richard Else Scotland End to End - Walking the Gore-Tex Scottish National Trail (Hardcover)

By walking all the way through Scotland from Kirk Yetholm in the Borders to Cape Wrath in the far North-West, author and broadcaster Cameron McNeish witnesses at first hand the changes that have taken place in the landscapes of the country of his birth. From the rolling, history drenched hills of the Borders he experiences the de-industrialisation of the Union and Forth and Clyde Canals between Edinburgh and Glasgow and the massive popularity of long distance walking on routes like the West Highland Way. Throughout the central highlands he records the changing use of landscape from the Romans to the contemporary shooting estates to the advent of Scotland's two National Parks and further north he walks in the footsteps of cattle drovers, Jacobite armies, poets and priests. But it's north of the Great Glen that he records the biggest changes, from the horrors of the Highland Clearances to large scale sheep farming, and from the Victorian shooting estates to large scale wind farm industrialisation. But through all the changes one thing remains constant, the natural beauty, the grandeur and the sensational wildlife that makes Scotland one of the finest wildlife tourism destinations in the world. "First of all I believed passionately that Scotland should have a long-distance trail that ran the length of the country," said Cameron, "and secondly, I wanted to walk through my own country of birth, simply to get to know it better, to weigh up aspects of its character and culture, to remind myself of its history and factions, its nuances and its remarkable diversity of landscape at a time when this small nation was beginning a process of re-discovery and questioning if it could go it alone outside the comfort zone of the UK. I wanted to re-discover this land of my birth for myself, especially those areas that I wasn't so familiar with. To link the all various routes together has been the challenge of the Gore-Tex[registered] Scottish National Trail, a route that I believe can stand comparison with the best walking routes anywhere in the world." The book is gloriously illustrated throughout by the photographs of landscape photographer Richard Else. It is a lavish book to keep and treasure. It is a celebration of all that's best about Scotland.

The Skye Trail - A Journey Through the Isle of Skye (Hardcover): Cameron McNeish, Richard Else The Skye Trail - A Journey Through the Isle of Skye (Hardcover)

Of all Scotland's islands none casts its spell quite as dramatically as the Isle of Skye. Celebrated in song and story, Eilean a'Cheo is a place of astonishing natural beauty and attracts climbers and walkers from all over the world. The 70-mile long Skye Trail connects two of the island's most extraordinary landscapes; the world-famous Cuillin, the most rugged mountain range in Britain, and the Trotternish ridge, a rolling escarpment of basalt hills that look over the sea to the tumbled landscapes of mainland Scotland. This long walk through the island, the 'Skitis' of the Celtic world, follows ancient byways, cattle drovers' routes, mountain footpaths and an old railway line, through a land where the first inhabitants sensed the presence of their gods in every nook and cranny, on every hill and crag, in every corrie and loch. Landscape and weather and an affinity with wild nature made up the very fabric of their lives. The route visits castles, takes in geological gems like the Quiraing and the Storr, follows rivers and loch-side paths and recalls those who were brutally removed from their homes during the Highland Clearances. It visits the site of the 'last battle on British soil' and climbs Bla Bheinn, surely the finest mountain on this island of fine mountains. The route then takes its finale along the old Marble Line to Broadford, and the end of a magnificent island journey. The Skye Trail is destined to be one of the most popular long distance walks in Britain. Adopted by the Highland Council as an official long distance walk, it was brought to life by BBC Scotland's often repeated "Skye Trail" presented by Cameron McNeish. This illustrated book is based on the broadcast and Cameron's experiences of the trail, the island, its people and its history and environment.
