In Along the Divide, Chris Townsend embarks on a 700-mile walk along the spine of Scotland, the line of high ground where fallen rain runs either west to the Atlantic or east to the North Sea. Walking before the Independence Referendum of 2014, and writing after the EU Referendum of 2016, he reflects on: nature and history, conservation and rewilding, land use and literature, and change in a time of limitless potential for both better and worse.

MEDIA REVIEWS

700 miles of rough, untracked wildness where the waters flow west on one side and east on the other. In walking along the spine of Scotland he has discovered the country's heart.

Not simply a long-distance walker but a fine writer who can evoke both the physical and mental journeys such undertakings entail.

Along the Divide treads that skilful line between serious, important landscape writing and a damned good tale that you can kick back and read for the pleasure of reading. - TGO Magazine

Beautifully crafted prose with personal insights and amusing detail. - Outdoor Focus Magazine

There is a natural and captivating flow in his storytelling, while his palpable passion for his experiences transports readers into sharing his gruelling journey. - Scottish Field

A thoroughly enjoyable travel book.’ - Halfman, Halfbook

An absolute treat. - Walk Magazine

Fabulous... - There's Something About Walking blog
