ScotWays is very pleased that this weekend’s Out Of Doors on Radio Scotland included a piece about the new edition of Scottish Hill Tracks.
Peter Mackay, one of the co-ordinating editors, went for a walk along the Firmounth with Radio Scotland’s Helen Needham. On their way they discussed both the history of the route and the history of our book. Helen, obviously a fan, said “Scottish Hill Tracks for me has been a really important book, it’s an enticing book because it’s full of promise”.
The programme is available through the BBC’s iPlayer until early on Saturday 4th February: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01bb723/Out_of_Doors_28_01_2012/.
The whole programme is well worth a listen, but if you’re short of time the Scottish Hill Tracks feature is between 1:02 and 1:09.
The walk over the Firmounth is just one of the 344 routes described in Scottish Hill Tracks. For a little more detail on the history of the route, visit the Firmounth page on the Heritage Paths website – http://www.heritagepaths.co.uk/pathdetails.php?path=126.
