The Cairngorms: Scene and Unseen


First published in 1989, Syd Scroggie's classic The
Cairngorms Scene and Unseen has stood the test of time
as one of the best original accounts of Scotland's bothy

A Lovat Scout, Syd was a true man of the hills and an
'inveterate scribbler'. Despite losing his sight and one
leg a fortnight before the end of the Second World War,
he returned to the Scottish mountains with companions
and summited over 600 hills well into his 80s. Syd is
frequently quoted as saying, 'I can do without my eyes,
but I can't do without my mountains,' and his rich, vivid
descriptions of his beloved Cairngorms speak of an
insight that transcends the corporeal.

With a foreword by the legendary Tom Weir, this
eloquent and inspirational book is a portrait of
forbearance and endurance, and will appeal to anyone
with an interest in the stories and history of Scottish
mountain culture.
