Wild Winter

In search of nature in Scotland's mountain landscape


£9.99 
 

In Wild Winter, John D. Burns, bestselling author of The Last
Hillwalker and Bothy Tales, sets out to rediscover Scotland's mountains, remote places and wildlife in the darkest and stormiest months. He traverses the country from the mouth of the River Ness to the Isle of Mull, from remote Sutherland to the Cairngorms, in search of rutting red deer, pupping seals, minke whales, beavers,
pine martens, mountain hares and otters. In the midst of the fierce weather, John?s travels reveal a habitat in crisis, and many of these wild creatures prove elusive as they cling on to life in the challenging Highland landscape.

As John heads deeper into the winter, he notices the land fighting back with signs of regeneration. He finds lost bothies, old friendships and innovative rewilding projects, and - as Covid locks down the nation - reflects on what the outdoors means to hillwalkers, naturalists and the folk who make their home in the Highlands.

Wild Winter is a reminder of the wonder of nature and the
importance of caring for our environment. In his winter journey throughthe mountains and bothies of the Highlands, John finds adventure, humour and a deep sense of connection with this wild land.
