WALKS IN THE
MOFFAT HILLS AND LOWTHERS
Written by JIM MANSON and published by CAMERON AND HOLLIS
In this book Jim Manson, a member of Moffat Mountain Rescue Team
for many years. shares with the reader his love for those wild Border
hills. Not only does he let you into the secret of where to find
the thirty-three best walks but he leaves you feeling that you now
know the area intimately - past and present.
The reader can find a walk for each season, following the author's
account and details of the walks through a year in the hills. Excellent
photographs capture the atmosphere of the area at all times of the
year and detailed maps guide your footsteps. Along with the author
you view the world from the rounded Lowther summits, walk the deep
glens and high ridges of Moffatdale or walk over into nearby Ettrick.
Even if you don't reach immediately for your boots and rucksack,
this is a good book for the armchair. Accounts of the deeds of Covenanters,
Border Reivers, Claverhouse's dragoons, the Brownie of Bodesbeck,
Moffat in its hey day as a spa town, and even Merlin, all make for
an interesting read.
