Author and TV presenter Cameron McNeish is hosting a talk about the great outdoors at an Inverness school next week.

McNeish has had a long career and a passion to share not only the beauty of Scotland’s mountains and glens, but to fight for their ongoing preservation in an ever-changing political landscape.

His latest talk, An Eye to the Hills – based around his third of a trio of autobiographical books – is part of a series on Inspiring People from the Royal Scottish Geographical Society.

For more than 40 years he has captivated audiences – through television, magazines, newspapers and social media – with his chronicles of Scotland’s majestic landscapes and the outdoor communities who inhabit them.

While much has changed, the hills themselves remain little altered, as do the reasons people visit them. Reviewing his collections of vivid essays and diary entries, McNeish shines the light of experience on memory, and renews his vision, keen to share his insights with those who love Scotland’s outdoors.

He raises awareness of unresolved conservation issues and rejoices in the opportunities now available for young people.

Tickets for the event at Inverness Royal Academy on Monday, January 15, are available via Eventbrite, with any remaining tickets sold on the door, although people are being advised to reserve in advance to guarantee entry. The talk is from 7.30pm-9pm.
