The Wilderness World of Cameron McNeish
Having walked, climbed, skied and backpacked throughout the world Cameron's passion for his home hills of Scotland is the motivating factor in his long career as an outdoors writer and broadcaster.
The Wilderness World of Cameron McNeish takes the reader on a journey to many wild places and through a series of essays on his native Scotland he defines those elements that makes wilderness so special and worth protecting. This book offers the opportunity to gaze into the mind of one of Britain's best known outdoor commentators.
The Sutherland Trail
In partnership with award-winning photographer and film maker Richard Else, Cameron has developed a superb week-long walking route through one of the finest landscapes in Europe. Sutherland, in the far north-west of Scotland, has long been described as 'the empty lands'. Much of the land is magnificently untamed and unpopulated, and the grandeur of the landscape attracts hillwalkers and backpackers from throughout the world. The Sutherland Trail between Lochinver and Tongue follows ancient pathways, stalkers' routes and hill tracks through one of the most geologically fascinating regions of the UK. This is the first guidebook to Scotland's latest long distance walking route.
The Skye Trail
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.
Scotland End to End
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. 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. To link a number of various routes together has been the challenge of the Scottish National Trail, a route that the author believes can stand comparison with the best walking trails anywhere in the world.
The Pilgrims' Trail
Enjoy Cameron's highly acclaimed film in which he celebrates the finest of Scotland's history and landscapes with a new coast to coast walk across the highlands from Argyll to Easter Ross.
Cameron takes a 250-mile route from St Columba's Holy Isle of Iona through Mull, including an ascent of Ben More, before continuing thjrough Morven, Morar to Glen Affric. He continues through Glen Strathfarrar, over Ben Wyvas and on through the wilds of Easter Ross to finish his journey at a Pictish site that has been described as Scotland's best kept secret, an 8th century monastic settlement at Portmahomack.
Scotland End to End
The DVD of the highly successful television programmes first broadcast in 2012 in which Cameron walks fro Kirk Yetholm to Cape Wrath, the most north-western point on the Scottish mainland. Making full use of ixisting long distance trail, rights of way and path networks he has created a phenomenal 470-mile route that stands comparision with some of the finest long walks in the world.
Scotland Coast to Coast
Alfred Wainwright’s Coast to Coast across the north of England has become one of the most popular long distance routes in the country and now well known outdoor writer and broadcaster Cameron McNeish has produced a marvelous route across his native Scotland, from the beach at Aberdeen to the wilds of Knoydart. En route Cameron also climbs Mount Keen, Scotland’s most easterly Munro, and Ladhar Bheinn, the most westerly Munro on the mainland.
The walk concludes at Cameron’s favourite pub, The Forge, the most remote pub in Britain, a perfect finish to a wonderful walk across the breadth of Scotland.
The West Highland Way
The West Highland Way is one of the most popular long distance trails in the world. Running for almost 100 miles between Milngavie, just north of Glasgow, to Fort William in the shadow of Ben Nevis, the UK's highest mountain, this route offers a superb diversity of landscape like no other. From the lovely shoreline of Loch Lomond to the wild open fastness of the Rannoch Moor this is a deservedly popular route. Cameron McNeish walks the route and describes its richness with stories and tales that you won't find in the guidebooks...
The Hebridean Trail
Travel the length of the Outer Isles with writer and broadcaster Cameron McNeish as he links together some of the best hillwalking areas in the Hebrides.
Using a mountain bike to negotiate the road sections of the route, Cameron travels from Vatersay, the most southern inhabited islands of the Outer Hebrides to Barra, lovely Eriskay, South Uist, North Uist, Berneray, Harris and Lewis.
En route he explores the hills of Barra, climbs Eaval on North Uist and An Clisham on Harris and walks the 20-mile Machair Way of South Uist and the 26-mile long Frith-Rathad an Hearadh, or the Harris Walkway. The Hebridean Trail evocatively captures the very essence of the Western Isles.
