About the Author
Hamish Brown is a mountaineer, lecturer, photographer and poet who has written or edited a score of books. Born in Colombo, early travels took him to Ireland, Japan and Malaya. He pioneered outdoor education at Braehead School in Fife, later becoming the County Advisor in Outdoor Education. Breaking bounds he set off in 1974 on the challenge of climbing the Munros in a single effort which led to the classic Hamish s Mountain Walk, which covers not only a remarkable feat but delves deeply into every aspect of the country he loves.
