RoW Epic Reaches Moffat Hills

This great 100 day journey-in-pictures; a visual treat along the entire Watershed of Scotland, it has now reached the hills to the north of Moffat. With daily postings in `Friends of the Ribbon of Wildness` on facebook, and @RibbonofWildnes on Twitter, it is easy to follow.

Its a `first` too: a highly original on-line presentation of the spectacular landscapes of the entire spine of Scotland, which sits well alongside the books in the Ribbonof Wildness trilogy.

Spectacular Visual and Virtual Journey Starts on the Border

Over the Summer period both Twitter and Facebook will be creatively used to present a spectacular 100 day journey along the entire Watershed of Scotland. Every day, a new photo will be posted which will build a visual account of this Ribbon of Wildness. Presenting Scotland as you have never quite seen it before, this is a most original gallery, and will surely delight all those who love the wilder landscapes of Scotland.

Fine Review of Nature`s Peace in Lothian Life

http://www.lothianlife.co.uk/2013/12/natures-peace-a-celebration-of-scotlands-watershed#m

"This work, a homage to John Muir and his vision of Nature, also transcends fine verbal descriptions with photographs which distil one key message. they illustrate the infinately variable wildness, both as the moving inspiration of the work but also as a precariously-held, vulnerable treasure."
