Ribbon of Wildness, Paperback / softback Book

Ribbon of Wildness Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


If you've bagged the Munros, done the Caledonian Challenge and walked the West Highland Way, this is your next conquest. The Watershed of Scotland is a line that separates east from west; that divides those river basin areas which drain towards the North Sea from those which flow west into the Atlantic Ocean on the other.

It's a line that meanders from Peel Fell on the English border all the way to the top at Duncansby Head, near John O' Groats - over 745 miles, through almost every kind of terrain.

The Watershed follows the high ground, and offers wide vistas down major river valleys, towards towns and communities, into the heartlands of Scotland. Walk the Watershed in eight weeks Tackle short sections over a weekend 7 route maps Over 30 colour photographsRibbon of Wildness provides a vivid introduction to this geographic and landscape feature, which has hitherto been largely unknown.

The rock, bog, forest, moor and mountain are all testament to the Watershed's richly varied natural state.

The evolving kaleidoscope of changing vistas, wide panoramas, ever-present wildlife, and the vagaries of the weather, are delightfully described on this great journey of discovery.
