Synopsis

From his home in the Cairngorms of Scotland, Cameron McNeish reflects on a life dedicated to the outdoors. Following his career as an international long jump athlete, he has for almost forty years written and talked about walking and climbing in Scotland, meeting some of the sport's great characters such as Chris Brasher, Sir Chris Bonington, Tom Weir, Julie Tullis and many more. A prolific author, he has led treks in the Himalayas and Syria, edited The Great Outdoors Magazine, establishing it as Britain's premier walking publication, created new long-distance walks and made television series, contributed a monthly column to The Scots Magazine, campaigned for Scottish independence and raised a family with his wife, Gina. Now he candidly recalls the ups and downs of a full life, much of it in the public eye, much of it until now unseen. Forward by Sam Heughan. Sam Heughan is a Scottish actor, best known for his leading role as Jamie Fraser in the hit TV show Outlander. He is also an outdoor enthusiast, and founder of My Peak Challenge, a charitable organisation which aims to encourage its members to lead healthier lives.
