More About the Author

Grant Hutchison was born in Dundee, and went to school and university in Dundee. He now lives and works in Dundee. He once had a job in Perth but he didn't like it, so he came home again.

He has been roaming the Scottish Highlands on foot for forty years, and has been writing about them for twenty. He wants you to know that he isn't actually as overweight as he appears in the second author photograph. Mullach na Dheiragain was a long walk on a cold day - so he's wearing five layers of clothing and cramming down a cheese sandwich.

In 1993, he concocted a comic story about a man who attempted to climb all the 3000-foot Scottish mountains listed in Munro's Tables ... in alphabetical order. More of the same followed, resulting in the book "Munro's Fables" and the ebooks "The Complete Lachlan" and "The Walking Types Omnibus". The ebooks have now been published together in a paperback compendium imaginatively entitled "The Complete Lachlan & Walking Types".

He has also managed to get considerable writing mileage out of his other interests. He has written on travel, natural phenomena and geography for Wanderlust magazine, on word origins for the British Medical Journal, and on natural phenomena for the Scotsman newspaper. His Wanderlust author page is at:

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If viewed as short stories, the "Walking Types" may be disappointing as they all end rather abruptly, but if, as the author suggests, they are looked on as vignettes, then you can enjoy a fun collection of observations of the bipedal primates found roaming the Scottish hillsides. Enjoyable as these are, the author's triumph, in my opinion, lies in the creation of the irrepressible Lachlan. It is hard to imagine a character like this existing anywhere else in the world. The untamed hillsides constantly exposed to the vagaries of Scottish weather provide the perfect nurturing ground for Lachlan’s untrammelled spirit. Hopefully he'll make a Sherlock Holmes like comeback. Long live Lachlan!
