The proposed book Fox of Glencoe – a collection of tales from Hamish MacInnes. Scottish Mountaineering Press.

Scottish Mountaineering Press “We’ve just reached a significant milestone for one of this year’s most exciting books with a completed manuscript for The Fox of Glencoe, a collection of tales from Hamish MacInnes.

Throughout this wonderful collection of stories, Hamish’s deep connection to the mountains and pragmatic approach to risk and loss are rendered in an inimical, wry style, with an intimacy that feels like conversing with an old friend. There is a sublime elegance in Hamish’s straightforward prose, and his ability to capture the absurdity of life in a couple of pithy sentences sets him apart as a writer.

Plenty more to do, and we expect the book to be out around the middle of the year. Watch this space.”

    Legend is an overworked word – but Hamish deserved the title.
