JUN 10Scottish FieldHighland Days
Scottish Field reviewed our new edition of Tom Weir's Highland Days.

'Classic autobiographical account of Weir's time spent in Scotland's hills ... Written as Weir was serving in the Second World War, his recollections are undoubtedly infused with an element of nostalgia for the peaceful naivety of his formative years, but this only enhances the passion with which he writes about the delights of scrambling through the hills.'
JUN 10Inverness CourierHighland Days
The Inverness Courier reviewed our new edition of Tom Weir's Highland Days.

'Above all, what comes across from his writing is Weir's sheer delight at being in the hills he loves with the underlying knowledge that many of his fellow city dwellers were not so lucky ... this is just the sort of tonic a climber could do with after a cold, wet and weary day on the hills to remind them why they went up in the first place'
